POSTPONED: Gun Violence Initiative 5th Anniversary Symposium

April 24, 2020
12:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
International Institute, Medical Campus

After much thought and discussion regarding the precautions that Washington University is putting into place due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to cancel this event in 2020.

We plan to reschedule this event in fall 2020 and hope that you will be able to join us then. To learn about future events, we encourage you to sign-up for our newsletter.

These precautions have been designed with input from the University’s COVID-19 response team, which includes leaders from across the university, including, importantly, infectious disease experts at the School of Medicine. Visit the WashU Information page to learn more. 

Join the Institute for Public Health, St. Louis Area Violence Prevention Commission and the Youth Violence Prevention Partnership in celebrating the 5th Anniversary of the Gun Violence Initiative (GVI) and its community-academic partnerships. Together we are working to reduce the impact of gun violence in St. Louis.

The Gun Violence Initiative addresses one of our greatest public health challenges: death and injury as a result of gun violence.


Keynote speaker
