Free Bike Helmet Safety Policy and Advocacy Webinar on July 30

Did you know…

  • More than five Ohio children died each year from bicycle-related TBIs from 1999 to 2007
  • 75% of bike-related fatalities would be prevented with a helmet
  • Current estimates for Ohio indicate that just 10-20% of children regularly wear helmets – but more than 70% of children ages 5 to 14 ride a bike regularly
  • At least 15 published peer-reviewed studies have shown that bicycle helmet laws increase helmet usage

With all of these facts, are you ready to increase bike helmet use in your community? Then sharpen your policy and advocacy skills on bike helmet safety by joining the Ohio AAP for a Bike Helmet Safety Advocacy Webinar to increase your confidence and knowledge as an advocate for bike helmet policies! Topics covered will include the impacts of local and state policies requiring bike helmet use for children, and best practices for advocating for policies as an individual or organization at local and state levels. This free webinar will be held from noon – 1 p.m. on July 30.
