Every day, more than 230 people are shot and over 100 people are killed due to gun violence. Gun violence is a public health crisis. Together, we can educate and advocate for evidence-based solutions to this epidemic.
Med Students for Gun Safety (MSGS) is a coalition of health professional students from across the United States dedicated to advocating for the end of gun violence in our country. MSGS was launched in August 2018 to answer a need for a stronger health student force in the national effort for gun violence prevention. Since then, we have strengthened and organized our voice in the fight against the gun violence epidemic. Our efforts are focused on:
- Promoting responsible gun ownership
- Advocating for effective federal violence prevention legislation
- Fighting for a better gun safety curriculum in medical education
- Increasing public health research on gun violence
Join MSGS Campaign & AMSA members along with our allies across the country who are calling on our Congress members to TAKE ACTION to help us address the public health impact of gun violence.
