The annual plenary session of the Arizona-Mexico Commission wrapped up last night with some important health events. We signed a Cooperative Agreement with the Secreteria de Salud Publica in Sonora to educate people on both sides of the border about the importance of buckling up children and infants. In the last Child Fatality Review report – there were 70 children who died in Arizona in motor vehicle accidents… 91% of those were preventable. One of the key messages is to teach parents and grandparents how much better a seatbelt is at protecting the kids from injury, even in the backseat. Another part of the agreement is to collect gently used and new car seats and present them at the next AMC meeting in December… you’ll be hearing more about this in the coming weeks.
