DEI & Healthcare Committees Round Table on Gun Violence as a Public Health Crisis

In 2019, more people were killed by firearms than traffic accidents in the U.S. (CDC)

Gun violence is the leading cause of death for ages 1-24 and in 2019, 1 out of 10 gun deaths were children and teens. (Coalition to Stop Gun Violence)

Join members of our Healthcare and DEI Committees for a Round Table discussion on how gun violence is a public health crisis and actions we can take to address this in our communities.

Check out this TED Talk, How the public health approach can solve gun violence by Megan Ranney, to get you started.
