In Texas, motor vehicle crashes are often the No. 1 reason people seek care in emergency rooms. In order to be designated as trauma centers, hospitals must offer injury prevention programs that teach people how to stay safe and avoid crashes and other causes of trauma. Texas Reality Education for Drivers (RED) has made a name for itself traveling around the state to teach people about the dangers of driving impaired or distracted. And Innocorp, ltd has proven to be just the right partner — offering relevant products and educational materials that have made a true impact on thousands of people throughout the state of Texas.
