Join Us on January 26th for the Next Public Health Webinar

Please attend the next webinar in a series exploring important topics in public health law. Each webinar is free and open to all interested parties. January's webinar titled "Gun Violence, Mental Illness and Firearms Laws: Research Evidence and Questions for Science, Policy and Practice" will be held Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 1-2pm ET.

This webinar will provide information and opportunities for discussion about the problem of gun violence in the US—its prevalence, causes and potential legal and policy approaches to reduce the problem. Specifically, the webinar will focus on what is known about the contribution of mental illness to violence and will consider the implications of this (somewhat ambiguous) research literature for law and policy that seek to limit firearms access for people with mental disorders who may pose a danger to themselves or others.
