Healthcare Seminar

Kids are going to fall, crash, slip, and tumble. It’s all part of being a kid, and we wouldn't want it any other way. But there are little things we can all do to ensure that kids avoid the more serious injuries that can lead to disabilities and even death. Join Dwayne Smith, Injury Prevention Program Manager* at Children's Hospital Colorado, to learn how Children’s Colorado is partnering with the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region to help ensure El Paso County kids are safe from preventable injuries at home, at play, and while being transported. Join us to as we talk about car seats, childproofing your home, and much more.

Yes! I'd like to attend:

Please RSVP by October 9.
