Center for Gun Violence Prevention
The Center for Gun Violence Prevention focuses on reducing injuries and deaths related to firearms and promoting safety in the home and in the community through clinical care and education, community engagement and research.
Gun Violence is a Public Health Crisis
The center continues the efforts of the Gun Violence Prevention Coalition, a multidisciplinary group including Mass General health professionals. The group has collaborated closely with several state organizations since 2015 to develop guidance for clinicians to talk to patients about gun safety.

Dr. Peter Masiakos
