Safety the focus of workshop
9/20/2013, 6 a.m.
Injury prevention efforts will be the featured topic at a Sept. 27 community meeting and open house at the Georgia Piedmont Technical College conference center in Clarkston.
“Safety Is No Accident,” sponsored by the DeKalb Board of Health’s Injury Prevention Program and the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
It will highlight upcoming injury prevention initiatives in schools and communities, followed by an open house offering networking, educational materials and a complimentary lunch.
Organizers say injuries often have major consequences. For example, the 2010 Status of Health in DeKalb report says that motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of death among DeKalb residents ages 1 to 34 between 2002 and 2006.
The college is at 495 N. Indian Creek Drive.
