Eastern Carolina Injury Prevention Program (ECIPP)

The Eastern Carolina Injury Prevention Program (ECIPP) was established in 1995. It is a joint effort of Vidant Health and the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University.


The ECIPP mission is accomplished by facilitating community projects and systems, which decrease the incidence and severity of injuries occurring in the 29 counties, served by our medical region.


The ECIPP vision is that citizens of eastern North Carolina will be safe and injury free on roadways, at work and school, at home and play and safe from violence at all times. In addition, we envision the continuous enhancement of systems, which promote the proper care of those who are injured.
