This event is part of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Week.
The Institute for Public Health at Washington University launched the program in early 2018 and is the first in the nation to incorporate three research universities (Washington University, Saint Louis University and University of Missouri-St. Louis) and four hospitals (Barnes-Jewish Hospital, SSM Health St. Louis University Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.)
Life Outside of Violence (LOV), is the short name for the St. Louis Area Hospital-Based Violence Intervention Program. The program helps those harmed by stabbing, gunshot or assault receive the treatment, support and resources they need to find alternatives to end the cycle of violence.
The idea behind LOV is to help decrease incidences of retaliation, criminal involvement, re-injury, and death. Panelist will share about the program and how to support! Lunch will be provided!
