Dr. Winston is being recognized for her lifelong professional commitment to combining public health, biomechanical engineering and psychologic methodologies to promote safety and prevent injury among children from motor vehicle crashes. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and acquired disability among children. Dr. Winston established Partners for Child Passenger Safety (PCPS), a research to action program; the PCPS child-focused crash surveillance system today contains data from more than 500,000 crashes involving children.

Child traffic deaths have been reduced by 15 percent since 1990, and PCPS is now recognized as the leading national resource for child safety experts. Dr. Winston has also provided expert input to national organizations such as the Institute of Medicine, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the United States Product Safety Commission.
