As Coordinator of the Houston Trauma Link Coalition, Dr. Shenoi is active in research and surveillance of accidental pediatric injuries in Houston and Harris County due to automobile crashes, submersions, and other causes. His activities includes the preparation of injury fact sheets and maps on accidental childhood injuries at the city, county, and regional levels using Fire/EMS, Crash, and State Trauma Registry databases. This data is used to guide injury-prevention programs by organizations such as the Houston Police Department and Greater Houston Safe Kids. His research group prepares the Annual TCH Non-Accidental Injury Report and is spearheading efforts in developing a state-wide electronic surveillance system for submersion injuries. His other activities include outreach education on office emergency preparedness for community pediatricians.

Utilizing a core set of strategies, the Emergency Services department is committed to our vision of improving the health outcomes of all children in emergent and urgent care settings. Additionally, we endeavor to fulfill our mission of providing the highest quality care, experience, education, research, advocacy and value.

Please note that Dr. Shenoi only sees patients in the Emergency Center and does not accept appointments.
