The Relentless School Nurse: Public Health Approaches to PROTECTING YOUTH From Gun Violence – COVID19 and Beyond

I am honored to participate in this important series of discussions sponsored by Northeastern University Bouve’ College of Health Sciences! Please join me and a distinguished panel of gun violence prevention experts as we explore the impact of two epidemics ravaging our county and the impact on our youth.

January 14, 21, and 28, 2021
Online, 4 – 5.30 pm ET

Northeastern University Bouvé College of Health Sciences, the School Health Academy, and the Public Health Advocacy Institute at Northeastern University School of Law present a three-part virtual conference to highlight the impact of gun violence on youth during the time of COVID and beyond.

The social and economic impact of COVID has increased the risk of gun violence affecting youth. Unrelenting stress and a spike in gun purchases have sparked an increase in gun violence that can be expected to continue post-COVID.

Health care professionals and other experts will discuss the increased risk of gun violence at home and in public (including schools) during the COVID pandemic, and recommend public health approaches to reduce gun violence affecting youth. Each session includes Q&A and a moderated break-out discussion

Who should attend?
Health care providers, public health officials, educators, policymakers, others working to protect youth from firearm injuries and death.

Conference fee: $75 for series
Credit: Nurses are eligible for CE credit.
