Featured Peacebuilding Group: IHERC -International Health & Epidemiology Research Center

With the serious problem in the U.S. regarding gun violence, we need to continue to press the make changes in the law to curtail the availability of firearms, particularly around children.  My colleague Elika Dadsetan shared with me the work of the LA based IHERC: International Health & Epidemiology Research Center which works to advance public health strategies in limiting gun violence.  Important work for sure! IHERC is this week’s Featured Peacebuilding Group.
