Every day, hospitals and health systems across the country respond to the health care injuries caused by gun violence. Gun violence has a significant health care dimension and as cornerstones of your communities, hospital and health system leaders have the unique authority to lead initiatives to reduce the risk for violence and advocate for advancing health.
We need to work together to ensure our communities and workplaces are safe. To that end, the AHA’s Hospitals Against Violence developed and curated resources and insights to advance the field’s efforts to combat this public health issue.
