EDUCATION / CME / MOC II

Preventing unintentional injuries has been one of Ohio AAP’s main focuses for many years, and bike helmet safety is the longest running injury prevention program of the Chapter. The Put a Lid on It Bike Helmet Safety Awareness campaign donates free bike helmets to pediatrician offices, county health departments, police and fire departments, schools, and dozens of other organizations through support from the Ohio AAP Foundation, Ohio Department of Transportation, and Honda of America Marysville. Bike helmets, combined with training materials for biking education, including how to properly fit children with bike helmets, help to increase helmet usage in children and prevent injuries.
