MAHC Network Webinar: Swimming Safely – Preventing Unintentional Drownings (October 2021)
While swimming and other aquatic activities are enjoyable ways for individuals to engage in physical activity, drowning is a leading cause of death for children, and 3,960 fatal drownings occur each year in the United States. During this webinar, Dr. Tessa Clemens from the Division of Injury Prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shared the latest data on factors that put people at a higher risk for drownings, racial and ethnic disparities in drowning rates, and prevention strategies. Ashley Armour from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County presented on the local health department’s successful drowning prevention program, highlighting their Students Preventing Unintentional Drownings (SPUD) program, a 2020 NACCHO Model Practice Award winner.
