Event Description

In July, Dialogue4Health and APHA sponsored the first Web Forum exploring the link between guns and violence. The event included robust discussion about the role of public health in addressing the problem–and how work at the state and local level and new technologies can influence positive change.

In our second Web Forum, we are taking this discussion a step further and right into the policy arena.  Our speakers will:

  • Further explore why violence should be viewed as a pandemic, and the problem solving approaches that such framing provides.
  • Address the challenges and opportunities of coalition building around this topic
  • Discuss the role of the local elected official in the gun violence debate
