Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence Executive Director Josh Horwitz issued the following statement:
“I am honored to join some of the world’s leading gun violence prevention researchers to discuss reducing gun violence in the United States. This tuition-free, first-of-its-kind MOOC will teach participants how to interpret gun violence prevention research and understand evidence-based interventions that save lives.
“We at the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence take our role as public health professionals seriously. The MOOC will allow us to translate that work and expertise for people around the world. We could not be more thrilled to share our data-driven approach with a global audience.”
