Children of Baltimore Get Free 'Helmets 4 Safety'
Date:10/22/2007

many children from low-income households in Baltimore are unable to afford such precautionary safety equipment. Studies show helmets can prevent 85 percent of serious head injuries and 65 percent of injuries to the mid- and upper face. Even with this information, children who say they "always" wear helmets varies among states from only 13 to 65 percent.

As the ASPS welcomes more than 6,000 plastic surgeons, medical personnel, and exhibitors to Plastic Surgery 2007, its 76th annual meeting, Oct. 26-31, at the Baltimore Convention Center, the Society wants to give its host city a gift to benefit its most prized possessions -- its children.

"Many thanks to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons for ensuring that this important public health issue is inclusive of the economically disadvantaged," said Baltimore Deputy Mayor Salima Siler Marriott. "Precautionary safety equipment must be available to all. Income cannot be a barrier to safety."

ASPS, in coordination with BCPSS, selected Federal Hill Preparatory School to host the donation based on the ethnic diversity and need of the student body. With 333 students, Federal Hill serves grades pre-kindergarten through eighth. All students at Federal Hill will receive helmets and the remainder will be distributed by BCPSS, city-wide to students, throughout the 2007-08 school year.

"We are thankful to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons for their generous gift," said BCPSS Chief of Staff Bennie E. Williams, Major General (Ret.). "We want our students to be physically active and engaged in play, but we also want them to be smart about safety. These helmets will ensure our students have the equipment they need to play hard and be safe."

Helmets 4 Safety is supported by a grant from the Integra Foundation.

"The Integra Foundation is pleased to support the Helmets 4 Safety program for the third year," said Integra Foundation Executive Director Gianna Sabella. "Bike riding is a leadi
