Approaching Violence Prevention Through a Public Health Lens

See how the CDC is pushing for a health approach to violence prevention.  I received this email from cure violence global at cvg.org.
“We continue to witness the shifting of the paradigm related to treating violence as a health issue. Most recently, we see this in the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) prioritization of funding for studies on gun violence prevention through a public health lens:  “I’m not here about gun control. I’m here about preventing gun violence and gun death.” said CDC Director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky. CVG applauds Dr. Walensky and the CDC for their continued recognition of violence as a public health issue and for Congress’s renewal of funding for research on gun violence prevention after a 20-year lapse.”
