History:

Formed in 2018, the Triangle Falls Prevention Coalition is a collaboration among three Level 1 Trauma Centers: Duke Trauma, UNC Trauma and WakeMed Trauma. The collaboration brings together a large region of Trauma RACs (Regional Advisory Committees) in the mid-Carolina region.  Quarterly meetings bring together professionals in health care, injury prevention and aging services and provide educational and networking opportunities.
