How much do your teenagers think about the consequences of distracted driving, not wearing a seatbelt and other risky behaviors? 

P.A.R.T.Y. — Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth — offers an approach to education geared toward the unique needs of teenagers. This one-day, in-hospital program is internationally recognized as an injury prevention strategy to help reduce the incidence of risk-related trauma in youth. Risk-taking behaviors is the leading cause of injury and death among young people, and this program was designed to show teens the consequences of activities such as drinking and driving, dangerous and distracted driving, not wearing helmets and other protective gear. It is geared to teenagers ages 13 to 18.

“This is a great opportunity to educate our teens on the consequences of risky behaviors. There will be hands-on games as well as demonstrations,” said Cari Hacking, trauma coordinator at Wyoming Medical Center.
