Dear RBHS Colleagues:
The New Jersey Center on Gun Violence Research at Rutgers University will be hosting their inaugural conference "Preventing Gun Violence in NJ: A Call to Action," on April 23, 2019. While registration is at capacity, you can watch the Conference via livestream (beginning at 9:00 am).
The event will introduce the center to the public, and allow for a broad audience to engage in a conversation about the future of gun violence prevention in New Jersey and throughout the country. It will begin with a keynote from Governor Phil Murphy followed by a talk from Dr. Stephanie Bonne who will present the state of affairs of gun violence in New Jersey. The conference will also include sessions led by center leadership wherein we will provide an overview of center goals and collaborative opportunities, highlights of ongoing gun violence research from center affiliates, and a moderated discussion regarding next steps for gun violence research.
