National Trauma Awareness Month:

The American Trauma Society was instrumental in having May of each year designated as National Trauma Awareness Month by President Ronald Reagan and Congress in 1988. Since then, ATS has worked with other trauma organizations to develop injury prevention and trauma awareness materials for use by our members in their communities. Each year, a new focus is designated which relates to injury prevention and raising trauma awareness.
