Oneida County Health Department’s efforts in injury prevention reduce death and disability from intentional and unintentional injury through coordination and implementation of health promotion and education programs and special events.
Injuries occur in highly predictable patterns with recognizable risk factors among identifiable populations. Injuries are a preventable health problem. They are not accidents. The Wisconsin Injury Prevention Program utilizes data from multiple sources to monitor injury-related events in Wisconsin.
For more information on injury prevention, please contact the health department at 715-369-6111.
