June 1 l Safe Kids West Oregon, Kim Ruscher MD
Kim is a Pediatric Surgeon at SHMC Riverbend and also chair of Safe Kids West Oregon (SKWO), an injury prevention coalition. Last year, SKWO distributed over 3,000 free bicycle helmets in our community, and will be continuing this effort – with their “Helmet for Every Head” campaign.
In addition, PeaceHealth and SKWO put on an annual Family Safety Fair, and are working to expand our efforts in the categories of distracted driving and home safety. Finally, we have a major effort this year to increase the proper use and installation of car seats and booster seats.
