    Gun Violence as a Public Health Issue (GVPHI) Community Forum

    On Saturday, April 22, OHSU and Portland State University will convene a community forum entitled “Transforming pain into power: Equipping a community to address the impacts of gun violence.”

    The event, which will welcome all individuals and families, is intended to:

    • Establish a safe venue that encourages community and institutional collaboration to reduce gun violence, address the social and societal conditions that contribute to it and advance the mission of healing and hope.

    • Validate that gun violence is a preventable public health issue that may be managed through positive community engagement and academic research.

    The day will include entertainment, knowledgeable key note speakers, small group break-out sessions, as well as on-site resources to advance knowledge, advocacy and healing.

    The event is free - please register here http://bit.ly/2nT5j80

    Lunch will be provided and child care is available upon request.
