Description

Congratulations to Cassandra Piekarski and Teagan Anderson, winners of the 2014-15 TIPSY Scholarship. Established in 2006, TIPSY program is a half day injury prevention program offered throughout the academic year to high school students (grades 11 & 12) in the Greater Toronto Area. The goal is to help youth understand how driver inexperience, lack of restraint use, and drinking/drugging while driving can result in tragedy on the roadways. This popular program is taught by an inter-professional team of nurses, physicians, and representatives from Toronto Police Services, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and a Voice of Injury Prevention (VIP). The VIP is a trauma survivor who has sustained a brain or spinal cord injury and recounts first-hand the events leading up to his/her injury, its consequences and lasting effects.
