Speaker Information

Gun violence is a public health crisis—and hospital-based intervention programs can play a powerful role in protecting the safety of patients. During this session you will learn about promising practices in gun violence prevention and explore the causes and the effects of trauma and violence on individuals, communities and organizations. You will have the opportunity to engage with hospital professionals who will share examples of hospital-based violence intervention programs and demonstrate how their organizations are instituting changes to prevent further gun violence and respond to its aftermath, both in their facilities and in their communities.
