Dr. Canale receives Humanitarian Award for injury prevention programs
The Safe America Foundation honored S. Terry Canale, MD, 2000 Academy president, with the first annual "WorldSafe Leadership Awards."
Dr. Canale was presented the WorldSafe Award for Humanitarian Leadership for the development of the Academys Public Relations Program and the Prevent Injuries America! campaign, both created under his leadership. The Prevent Injuries America! campaign included the Academys first multimedia public service campaign, the Bone and Joint Camp, the Safe and Accessible Playground Project, and the eMotion Pictures: An Exhibition of Orthopaedics in Art.
The Safe America Foundation recognizes individuals, companies and organizations committee to and taking leadership in innovation that protects life. The organization began in 1992 with a campaign to reverse the rising numbers of infant fatalities in car crashes. Safe America has since diversified into other safety programs to address lifelong injury prevention, including cyber safety, teen impaired driving, home safety, international travel, and violence prevention.
