The Indiana State Department of Health will hold a Trauma Listening Session from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 24, at The Mid America Science Park, 821 South Lake Road South, Scottsburg. Division of Trauma and Injury Prevention staff, along with local stakeholders, will hold an “open house” style meeting for Hoosiers to learn more about trauma, learn how state and local agencies currently respond to trauma, learn how a trauma system could help the state and, most importantly, gather personal stories of how trauma has affected those in Indiana.

Traumatic injury is the No. 1 killer of Hoosiers under the age of 45. Traumatic injuries kill young people in the prime of their lives, impacting society as a whole in health costs, lost productivity and emotional distress.
