The Research Foundation strives to prevent injuries among youth through school-based ThinkFirst of Greater Kansas City presentations and our Young Traffic Offenders Program.
These programs teach young people about how to make smart, safe decisions and the consequences of injuries to the brain and spinal cord. When you give to The Research Foundation's injury prevention efforts, you are helping keep young people in our community safe.
