Suzanne D. Hill is program director of Outreach and Advocacy at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

She specializes in translating child and youth injury prevention research into health promotion strategies that involve public policy advocacy, public relations, social marketing and digital communications.
