Join us for a free, public symposium about firearm violence prevention April 25.
Organized by Master of Public Health students, this event will promote a constructive conversation around firearm violence prevention, including a keynote speech by Dr. Garen Wintemute, a UC Davis emergency physician and directer of the UC Davis Firearm Violence Research Center, and a response panel with Ricky Bluthenthal, Associate Dean for Social Justice at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.
The two-hour seminar will feature voices and perspectives medical providers, violence prevention researchers, community activists, community members, responsible gun owners, people affected by gun violence, law enforcement and more. Participants will hear talks and engage in practical skills workshops about the overall impact of firearm violence and how individuals and communities can work towards mitigating the risk of firearm-inflicted injury and mortality.
Dinner from Homegirl Cafe and catering is included for registered guests.
