Other Student Education

The IPC participates in other injury prevention educational programs.  Each semester IPC staff present lectures to Rhode Island College nursing students on RI's injury problems and the role that visiting nurses can play in identifying potential injury risks within the home.

The IPC also hosts high school internships from a local charter school in Providence. Through these internships high school students learn about the state's injury problem and play an active role in developing and implementing community based injury prevention problems.

The IPC also hosts a variety of internships for college students via the 4-Safety Program.
