Introducing: Christina Galatioto, SACA CCP Liaison

I am currently a 6th trimester student at Northeast College of Health Sciences where I am also the specialty councils liaison for our SACA chapter. I am passionate about involving myself and others in SACA and will strive to be an excellent source of communication between students and the Pediatric Council. My hometown is Queensbury, NY where I spend a lot of my time hiking and exploring the Lake George area. I have a 6 month old bunny named Junior and an elderly dwarf hamster named Luna :)

With the arrival of warmer weather, more people will be taking to the streets on their bikes.

The Hard Facts from Safe Kids Worldwide:

Properly-fitted helmets can reduce the risk of head injuries by at least 45 percent – yet less than half of people 14 and under usually wear a bike helmet.

Top Tips

  1. Wear a properly-fitted helmet. It is the best way to prevent head injuries and death.
  2. Ride on the sidewalk when you can. If not, ride in the same direction as traffic as far on the right-hand side as possible.
  3. Use hand signals and follow the rules of the road. Be predictable by making sure you ride in a straight line and don’t swerve between cars.
  4. Wear bright colors and use lights, especially when riding at night and in the morning. Reflectors on your clothes and bike will help you be seen.
