Firearm Safety

  • Partnership for the Safety of Children Around Firearms – Founded on the belief that gun ownership is a personal choice, this joint partnership including Blackwing Shooting Center, Buckeye Firearms Association, Kiwanis Club of Columbus, and the Columbus Police Department encourages the safe storage of firearms and the education of children about safety issues related to firearms.
  • Store It Safe – Store It Safe is a unique partnership of healthcare providers, firearm safety experts, and community organizations established to keep children safe from unintentional gun deaths and teens safe from suicide by firearms. Young children are curious and will touch anything, while teens are still learning to control impulses. Our goal is to inform families of risks so they can keep their children safe.

Parenting at Mealtime and Playtime (PMP)

  • The Parenting at Mealtime and Playtime (PMP) program combines more than 10 years of proven, successful nutrition and obesity-prevention education into a program aimed at making Ohio children healthier.

Safe Sleep

Smoke Free Families

  • Smoke Free Families Learning Collaborative – Aims to build upon the existing relationships between primary care providers and families by addressing caregiver and family member smoking behavior early in a child’s life, during infant well visit appointments. A screening tool has been developed for easy implementation into clinical practice to allow providers to seamlessly screen for family member smoking and utilize the 5As (Ask, Advise, Assess, Assist and Arrange) for smoking cessation.

TRAIN

  • Timely Recognition of Abusive Injuries (TRAIN) Collaborative – This learning collaborative trains pediatricians on identification and importance of injuries that were not recognized as abuse, known as sentinel injuries, and educates them on implementing evidence-based recommendations for evaluation of infants with such injuries.
