About the Program

Aimed at the at-risk youth who stand the greatest chance of becoming either the perpetrators or victims of violence, this free two-hour program brings teens into our hospital trauma bays and uses real-life (and death) scenarios to educate them about the physical and emotional realities of gun violence.
