2020 was the deadliest year on record for gun-related deaths in decades. Even during a global pandemic, gun violence increased, devastating communities and reinforcing the need for leadership and policy change at the Federal, State, and local level.
Please join Kim Meredith, CEO of the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation, in conversation with Dr. Andre Campbell, Professor of Surgery at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, and Congressman Mike Thompson (CA-5th District), for an important discussion on the need to define gun violence as a critical public health issue.
Special introduction by Alex Rosenblatt, SFGHF Board Director.

Gun Violence is a Public Health Issue
Wednesday, July 14th at 1:00 pm PT
Congressman Mike Thompson represents California’s 5th District and is a leader in common-sense gun legislation in his role as Chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force.
Dr. Andre Campbell has spent his career treating the most difficult traumas at San Francisco’s only Level 1 Trauma Center, ZSFG. Through witnessing the destruction guns can cause, he has become a vocal advocate of gun violence prevention programs, most recently speaking out against the proposed reversal of the assault weapon ban in California that has saved countless lives over the past three decades.
