RESEARCH

In 2006, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg appointed Executive Director, Mary L. Pulido, Ph.D., to the New York City Child Fatality Review Advisory Team (CFRAT).  The CFRAT was established to review all preventable deaths among New York City children ages one to 12 and to make recommendations for expanding the City's child safety efforts.  Over the past four years, the CFRAT has conducted research and published reports on motor vehicle and traffic accidents, residential fires, fatal unintentional injuries sustained in the home and the socio-economic conditions, housing quality, and racial disparities in injury-related child deaths.
