Hero Description:

This TR team has a goal to help families stay safer and prevent child injury. This is done by “translating” published research into usable, health literate formats so the information quickly gets into the hands of those who need it most – families and caregivers. Health literacy is a foundation block of every press release, toolkit, blog/newsletter article, social media post, infographic, meme, and project website this team employs in their translation work. We also teach others, particularly public health people, how to more effectively convey their message.
