UGA Public Health Researchers Receive Grant from Governor’s Office of Highway Safety

Researchers from the University of Georgia College of Public Health’s department of health promotion and behavior received a one year, $308,800 grant from the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) to evaluate the effectiveness of educational and law enforcement-focused programs. For the tenth straight year, the Traffic Safety Research and Evaluation Group (TSREG) led by principal investigator Dr. Carol Cotton will systematically review and analyze grantee effectiveness and, ultimately, determine the overall effectiveness of GOHS in managing hundreds of grantees. To date, TSREG received $3.2 million in grant money from GOHS for this ongoing project.
