Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma Celebrates Five Years of Saving the Lives of Injured Kids
Date:7/30/2013

Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

The Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma celebrated its fifth anniversary with a visit by NASCAR team owner Richard Childress to Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis, Ind. on July 25. Childress and his wife Judy established the Institute in 2008 to help save the lives of injured children across the U.S. by supporting research, education and awareness.

“When Judy and I learned that critical injury was responsible for the death of more children in the U.S. than all other causes combined and how little attention this crisis was receiving nationally, we knew those kids needed a champion,” said Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing and co-founder of the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma. “The more awareness and support we raise, the more lives we will save.”

Since its inception, the Childress Institute has made significant strides in improving the treatment of injured children in the U.S. An encouraging sign is the decrease of national childhood deaths from 2005 to 2010 from 12,388 to 9,523*.

Wayne Meredith, the Institute’s executive director and chair of general surgery and director of the division of surgical sciences at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

Recent milestones include:

  • Partnered with the Pediatric Trauma Society (PTS) to co-host a national pediatric trauma conference to begin work on a 10-year plan for advancing research, treatment and educat
