What is AAAM?
The Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM) is a professional multidisciplinary organization dedicated to limiting injuries from motor vehicle crashes. It was founded in 1957 by the Medical Advisory Committee to the Sports Car Club of America (six practicing physicians whose avocation was motor racing). Since 1964, full and equal membership status has been available to all road safety professionals and the focus has expanded to encompass the globe. AAAM members enjoy the benefit of online subscriptions to articles from the journals: Accident Analysis and Prevention as well as Traffic Injury Control.
