Next Steps: Advocating for Gun Violence Prevention after the Advocacy Summit

Meeting Description:
The SOPHE Policy & Resolutions Committee came to a consensus that the public health impact of gun violence prevention is a key issue for health educators in 2018. Based on evaluation from the 2017 Advocacy Summit, participants wanted to see how to apply the tools, tactics, and skills students, faculty members, and all public health professionals gained during the Summit. Also, how participants can use those the tools, tactics, and skills on a local and state level. The purpose of this webinar is for participants and those who did not attend the 2018 Advocacy Summit to be able to apply the tools, tactics, and skills learned to advance health education.
