Please join NJGVRC, Executive Director, Mike Anestis, and Associate Professor in the Department of Urban-Global Public Health at the Rutgers School of Public Health Thursday, October 8, at 12pm for a Facebook live discussion on “Preventing Firearm Suicide Across Diverse Communities and Settings.”
National experts on firearm suicide prevention will discuss the various communities most heavily impacted by this tragedy and what can be done.
The conversation will include thoughts on how COVID-19 and the current racial justice movement might impact our approach to firearm suicide prevention and how the unprecedented surge in firearm sales during COVID-19 has potentially increased suicide risk nationwide.
The panel will include:
Emmy Betz, MD, MPH, Director, Patient Center Injury Prevention, and Founder of the Colorado Firearm Safety Coalition.
Craig Bryan, PsyD, ABPP, Clinical Psychologist, Suicide Prevention Researcher for Ohio State College of Medicine
John F. Gunn III, Postdoctoral Associate, NJ Gun Violence Research Center (NJGVRC)
