             Executive Summary - Dr. Harold Weiss, PhD, MPH, MS
Dr. Weiss’ career in public health began in 1974. He has served at both the local and state levels in a
variety of professional capacities ranging from environmental health enforcement, infectious and
environmental disease control, to statewide program planner and section supervisor in childhood
injury control. In all of his public service, his work has been noted for its dedication, creativity,
importance and intensity. At all levels, he has shown the interest and adaptive ability to serve as a
leader and visionary in the young public health sciences of environmental epidemiology and injury
control. Since focusing his career in injury control in 1985, he quickly became a nationally
recognized leader serving in several national leadership positions. He has been a creative force in
helping the field move forward in many areas including training, communications, and improved
surveillance.
Dr. Weiss began his academic career at the University of Pittsburgh in 1992 when he was selected
to help develop the new Injury Research Center (CIRCL) after a nationwide search. He almost
immediately was successful in garnering key and substantial extramural funding from both state and
federal sources. His major role in helping to kick-start the Center then is an important reason why
the Center still exists today and has grown in size and recognition as a national leader in the field of
injury research and control. It is notable that while engaged full-time in helping to build the Center,
writing grants, working with students, submitting papers and running projects, Dr. Weiss managed
to squeeze in his doctoral degree and doctoral dissertation as a part-time student from 1994-1999.
His research career has covered a variety of topics including injury surveillance, school violence
prevention, baby walkers, pesticide poisonings, bicycle injuries, transportation safety, farm injuries,
hospital discharge data, data linkage, elderly falls, motorcycle injuries, recreational injuries and
ferret bites, among other areas. Currently, he is focusing on the study of injuries to females,
pregnant women, and fetal outcomes due to trauma. As in his previous endeavors, he is emerging as
a noted national voice for the importance of work in this underserved area.
Dr Weiss has a strong record of scholarly publications with 40 refereed publications. He has three
publications in JAMA, two as first author, and several letters to the editor published in leading
journals. Many of the articles are notable for covering new ground, opening new fields, and have led
to changes in the way some federal agencies do their work. His topical focus and approaches to his
field of endeavor (injury control) are always innovative, well thought of by his peers, and often
considerably ahead of the crowd.
Dr. Weiss was a very early adopter of the Internet. He is author of several websites including the
Injury Control Resource Information Network (ICRIN), which has been awarded several honors and
is one of the top websites in the field with over 120,000 visitors since its inception and is the top
listed “injury control” web site on the Internet (Google, 2002-3). Dr. Weiss does not currently have
many formal teaching responsibilities, but he communicates often to the next generation of
researchers and practitioners through the websites as well as numerous presentations and lectures at
meetings, roundtables and conferences and as a graduate student mentor. He is currently pioneering
work in synchronous delivery of lectures, seminars and group coordination through live Emeeting
tools.
Dr. Weiss has been consistently successful in obtaining independent funding from a variety of state
and federal agencies. Several large grants he was PI on were instrumental in the qualification of the
Center for its initial round of CDC funding. His University of Pittsburgh grants portfolio includes
over $7 million over 16 years. He is an active member of professional societies and sought after
member of specialist working groups and review panels.

In October, 2002, Dr. Weiss was appointed the Director of the Center for Injury Research and
Control (CIRCL) by the Vice Chancellor for the Health Sciences and led the successful competitive
renewal effort for five years of funding. The Center conducts and promotes injury control research,
gathers and disseminates information on injuries, provides training for health professionals, and
informs public and community leaders on injury control issues.
Dr. Weiss led the administrative core and supervises a staff of about 6 people including students,
faculty, and staff. CIRCL is an interdisciplinary academic research program involving many schools
and departments at the University of Pittsburgh. Its mission is to reduce the occurrence, severity and
consequences of injury and violence through the development and conduct of multi-disciplinary
research and educational and training activities. CIRCL’s current theme emphasizes neurological
injuries occurring to or impacting on women and children. It also facilitates the translation of
research into injury control policies and programs for prevention, acute care and rehabilitation,
working collaboratively across the University and the Region.
In 2009 he became Director of the Injury Prevention Research Unit and Professor in the Department
of Preventive and Social Medicine, Dunedin School of Medicine, at the University of Otago,
Dunedin, New Zealand.
