Who We Are
The Program for Injury Prevention in Youth Sports (PIPYS) is a partnership between Vanderbilt Sports Medicine and the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. It is a multidisciplinary team of dedicated medical center, university and community partners whose mission is to develop, evaluate and promote strategies to prevent youth sports related injuries and to protect the health of the pediatric athlete. Overuse injuries, heat-related injury, concussion, hazing, violence against women and children are just a few of the topics we address through the five purposes of the center: Research, Education, Advocacy, Social and Legislative action, and Patient care.
