The Honda USA Foundation has awarded a grant to Children’s of Alabama to support the Health Education and Safety Center at Children’s of Alabama. The Children’s of AL Health Education and Safety Center conducts several child safety programs, including ThinkFirst Alabama and Child Passenger Safety.
ThinkFirst Alabama is an evidence-based curriculum taught in schools statewide. It uses age-appropriate concepts to teach children about helmet use, bicycle safety, pedestrian safety, concussion awareness and prevention and ATV safety.
The Child Passenger Safety Program educates caregivers about choosing, installing and checking their child's appropriate car seat or booster seat. Thanks in part to support from the Honda USA Foundation, the program will provide car seats and booster seats to families who need them. This includes families discharged from Children’s of Alabama and families identified through community partners.
