We were delighted recently when our partners at Safe Kids China asked us to visit and conduct a child passenger safety certification course in Shanghai. Our goal was to teach and certify health and safety professionals in Shanghai about the benefits of using child safety restraints in the car.

Only an estimated 2-3 percent of the population in China have or use car seats. But things are starting to change. A newly passed law will go into effect soon in Shanghai that will require children under 4 to ride in car seats. This is huge step in the right direction.

Distracted Walking and Teens

I’m one of those people who is always on the phone.  Whether I’m texting or tweeting or instagramming, it comes with the territory of working in PR and social media. I know that texting while driving is extremely dangerous and I’ve really focused on not checking my phone while I’m driving. But living in the D.C. metro area means I rarely drive. I walk to the metro, then I metro to work.
