Child Safety

MNAAP’s child safety work group is discussing ways to decrease intentional and unintentional injuries and deaths. Unintentional injuries are the number killer of Minnesota children, youth and young adults, according to the Minnesota Safety Council. Firearm violence and safety is another major concern of this work group.

Until 2018, this group had been focused primarily on child abuse and neglect. Based on feedback from the chapter’s annual member survey, the focus has broadened to include additional child safety concerns.
