Gun violence is a national public health crisis. As an academic public health community, we have a fundamental role in advancing long-term solutions to this epidemic. This program convened members of the ASPPH Gun Violence Prevention Task Force to discuss actions that we can take, with a focus on four core areas of intervention, including education and training, research, policy and advocacy, and practice.

This event was cohosted with the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH).
