Gun violence and public health: Live webcast from Harvard Jan 9.

From the Harvard’s School of Public Health: Live Webcast Tuesday, January 8, 2013 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM ET

The U.S. witnessed an alarming string of multiple mass shootings in 2012. Among the deadliest in the country’s histogun-violence-webry was the recent rampage in an elementary school in Newtown, CT, where a gunman killed more than two dozen people, mostly children. He also killed his mother and himself. The Connecticut shooting prompted President Barack Obama to call for an end to such tragedies, but what policy changes can Americans realistically expect? This Forum event will investigate the legal, political, and public health factors that could influence future efforts to prevent such massacres. Presented in collaboration with Reuters.
