2014 marks the 20thanniversary of the Injury Prevention Center of Greater Dallas (IPC). I like to think of anniversaries and milestones as a time of reflection – a time to celebrate past accomplishments and embrace future direction. A lot can happen in 20 years. During the past 20 years, we have witnessed triumph, as well as tragedy.

Safe States President, Carol Thornton, will be joining Jeff Levi, Executive Director of the Trust for America’s Health (TFAH), for the release of the new report: Prescription Drug Abuse: Strategies to Stop the Epidemic.
