Linda Deguitis, DrPH, MSN, Howard Penderhughes, PhD, Benita Tsao, MPH, Marc Philpart, MPA, MPH, and Sheila Svannah, MA
Community violence is a preventable public health issue and shaped by many factors, including racism. Violence impacts our overall health and well-being and prevents communities from realizing their full potential.
Hear from APHA Past President Linda Degutis, former director of the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Howard Pinderhughes of UC San Francisco, Policy Link, and the Prevention Institute for an important discussion about race, place and preventing violence. We explored the role of public health in preventing this epidemic and the value of engaging many sectors in the solution.
