A Community Health Approach to Social Emergencies, American Racism, and Firearm Injury Prevention (APA2325.01)

Sessions will explore multi-level health strategies that may be developed to prevent and treat firearm injury in American society. Students will gain exposure and experience in program design by creating, operationalizing, and evaluating the impact of a novel, narrative-based educational framework for community outreach that unifies community stakeholders with their health systems, healthcare providers, and first responders. Readings will involve both real-world programmatic documents/evaluations as well as peer-reviewed journal articles.
