Monday Webinar to Detail Gun Violence During COVID-19 Pandemic

The Joyce Foundation will be hosting a new monthly virtual Lunch & Learn webinar series highlighting emerging research on gun violence. The first webinar will be held on Monday, August 10 at 9:00 am and will feature Dr. Garen Wintemute and Julia Schleimer from the University of California, Davis. Dr. Wintemute was a previous CHEAC Annual Meeting plenary speaker and is the Baker-Teret Chair in Violence Prevention at UC Davis.

The webinar will detail new research released in July on gun violence trends during the COVID-19 pandemic which found that the surge in firearm purchases during the pandemic is linked to higher rates of firearm violence in the U.S.
