About Us

The MGH Gun Violence Prevention Center is a multidisciplinary initiative at Massachusetts General Hospital dedicated to preventing firearm-related violence and promoting safety in the homes and communities of the patients we serve.

I have cared for many victims of gun violence and have had to tell mothers about the death of their child—the worst part of my job. Doctors, among others, can no longer stand on the sidelines as so many Americans are killed each year.
