The CDC wants to create a new team to support training at its National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC). The training would improve data collection and analysis across the organization.

  • Linda Degutis, lecturer at the Yale School of Public Health and former director of the NCIPC, said the new effort would train doctors and biologists on the use of data to support injury prevention strategies, treatments and patient care.
  • Degutis said the CDC evaluates data to identify injury risk factors and protective elements and is working to understand new datasets and ways to combine them.
  • Degutis said the CDC found that 60% of deaths from firearms are from suicide, so the agency can use data to identify prevention measures, such as helping people who sell firearms to understand signs of potential firearm suicide.
