In 2006, Temple University Hospital’s trauma department launched Cradle to Grave in order to educate young people about the physical, emotional and social consequences of gun violence, while providing them an unflinching glimpse into the clinical aspects of this public health crisis. Since its inception, Cradle to Grave has seen more than 4,000 students participate in the program.
