Community Violence


Penn Medicine


Every year, hundreds of gun deaths in the United States are determined to be accidental or preventable, with many of them being children. In an effort to address this, Penn Medicine will use AHE’s funding to back efforts at providing secure firearm storage information and devices to reduce the chance that they will be misused or accessed by the wrong person.
