In recognition of the one year anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT, Town Hall and Seattle Children’s Hospital present an educational forum focused on what parents and care providers can do now to protect children from gun violence. Panelists will provide tips on how to keep kids safe from guns and tools for starting meaningful conversations that may help reduce violence. This wide ranging conversation will be moderated by Dr. Leslie Walker, Division Chief, Adolescent Medicine, Seattle Children’s Hospital and professor of pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine. A diverse panel of speakers includes a sitting judge and medical and public health professionals from Seattle Children’s and University of Washington, including its Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center.

Presented by: Town Hall and Seattle Children’s Hospital, as part of the Civic series. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust, the True-Brown Foundation and the RealNetworks Foundation. Promotional partnership by ParentMap and media sponsorship by KUOW.
