The Cure Violence program is part of a movement that advocates for (1) enacting social and behavioral campaigns to reduce violence; (2) using the comprehensive health care system as a point of intervention to interrupt the spread of violence; and (3) developing public health and epidemiology tools for community-based violence prevention programs. In this webinar, Cure Violence Director Of Health Policy Shannon Cosgrove and Director of Innovation and Development Jalon Arthur will discuss why violence is a health problem, how health leaders play an integral role in solving all forms of violence, and how we can work across sectors to address violence. The webinar will be held on Thursday, August 18 from 3 to 4 p.m. ET.
