Published on

According to the WHO, there are more than 400,000 homicides globally each year, with millions more suffering from non-fatal injuries. Our hospitals and emergency departments care for many of these patients; however, many return with repeat injuries or are killed within 5 years. In order to reduce intentional violence, it is necessary to discuss and understand its root causes. Dr. Gore’s talk will touch on some of the root causes of violence and further discuss the program he founded called KAVI, a hospital,school and community based intervention as a way of both improving recidivism as it relates to violent trauma and decreasing the incidence of intentional violence overall.
