Dr. Lorann Stallones, a Professor of Epidemiology and member of the Colorado Injury Control Research Center at Colorado State University, recently returned from a five-day trip to Wuhan, China, where she served as part of the USA-China Agricultural Injury Research Training Project. The group trained 32 Chinese scholars on issues critical to reducing traumatic agricultural injuries sustained while working with machinery or animals.
Dr. Stallones, who was joined by Celia Walker, former Director of Regulatory Compliance at Colorado State, partnered with Huiyun Xiang from the Center for Injury Research and Policy at the Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Their work is funded through a grant from the Fogarty International Center. The group will return to a different Chinese city each year for the next four years.
The long-term goal of the project is to develop the expertise of Chinese scholars to address agricultural injury prevention and to develop more active research collaboration between Chinese and U.S. scholars on the issues.
