About this webinar

Gun-related violence comes in many forms and differentially impacts individuals based on gender, community, setting as well and racial and economic attributes.

Efforts to prevent gun harm or increase survivability must take these nuances into consideration to match solutions with the causal factors.

Join renowned University of Chicago Medicine trauma surgeon Dr. Selwyn Rogers, to learn about the major categories of gun violence and the different solutions that are needed for each.

During our time, we will discuss:

  • How gun violence takes different forms and impact varies by identity group
  • Addressing gun violence must take these different pathways into account when designing strategies
