Hosted by Northwell Health’s CEO Michael Dowling, the Gun Violence Prevention Forum is an annual convening of key healthcare and cross-sector leaders to form alliances, drive strategy, and elevate the national conversation around gun violence as a public health emergency.

This ground-breaking public health summit is focused on mobilizing collective efforts within the healthcare industry. And now – building on the significant momentum we have seen in healthcare and at a national level – is the urgent time to mobilize from advocacy to action.

The Gun Violence Prevention Forum welcomed 100 dedicated leaders in-person in New York City. Select sessions were also available to be streamed live by a global audience of 2000+ changemakers – those sessions are also available to re-watch now on the 2023 Forum Agenda Page.

The inaugural Gun Violence Prevention Forum led to the creation of the Center for Gun Violence Prevention—an initiative that calls for the critical need to implement evidence-based firearm injury and mortality prevention strategies in health care, especially within at-risk communities.
