Welcome to CIRCA
The Consortium for Injury Research and Community Action (CIRCA) is a university-wide comprehensive Injury Control Research program that provides community based injury prevention, research, training, and service through an extensive collaboration with a broad range of university, state and local organizations. The consortium conducts and promotes injury control research, gathers and disseminates information on injuries, provides training for health professionals, and informs public and community leaders on injury control issues. The unifying theme is a unique focus on social, public policy, environmental change and community participatory-based approaches to injury research and prevention.
Our mission is to understand how the social and physical environment affects injury risk and how social norms, community-based interventions, public policy and environments can be altered to reduce the occurrence, severity and consequences of injury through development of multi-disciplinary research and educational and training activities.
