Since 2009, Howie, Sacks & Henry has been proud to be the sole sponsor of St. Michael’s Hospital ThinkFirst Injury Prevention Strategy for Youth (TIPSY) Program.

Established in 2006, TIPSY program is a half day injury prevention program offered throughout the academic year to high school students (grades 11 & 12) in the GTA. The goal is to help youth understand how driver inexperience, lack of restraint use, and drinking/drugging while driving can result in tragedy on the roadways.

This popular  program is taught by an inter-professional team of nurses, physicians, and representatives from Toronto Police Services, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and a Voice of Injury Prevention (VIP). The VIP is a trauma survivor who has sustained a brain or spinal cord injury and recounts first-hand the events leading up to his/her injury, its consequences and lasting effects.
