Hybrid Lecture

In 2022, there were more than 48,000 gun deaths and 600 mass shootings in the U.S., yet funding for gun violence prevention research is difficult to obtain and most doctors are not taught how to approach the topic with patients. MGH Hospitalist Chana Sacks, MD, is a general internist at MGH. She co-founded the Mass General Gun Violence Prevention Center and formed the Mass General Gun Violence Prevention Coalition following a gun tragedy that profoundly affected her family. Join us as Dr. Sacks discusses why she has become a vocal advocate for gun violence prevention research and why she views gun violence as a solvable problem.
