BCHS Panel Discussion

Grand Rounds "Interrupting the Cycle of Violence" with Tio Hardiman of Chicago's CeaseFire Violence Interrupters

Wednesday 2/7 12:15PM - 1:45PM
Public Health Lecture Hall (A115)

The Violence Prevention Initiative at Pitt Public Health is pleased to host Tio Hardiman, Executive Director of CeaseFire Violence Interrupters, Inc., Chicago. Mr. Hardiman will speak on “Interrupting the Cycle of Violence,” which will be followed by a panel discussion. Firearm injury is a major public health challenge. In 2015 rates of homicide were 2.1 per 100,000 for whites but 17.2 per 100,000 for African Americans. Nonfatal firearm injuries by race were 4.7 vs. 58.6 per 100,000, respectively (CDC WISQARS). The CeaseFire model treats firearm violence as an infectious process and uses street-savvy
interventionists to interrupt violence.

Panelists Include:
 Richard Garland, MSW, Assistant
 Professor, Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences


 Taili Thompson, Allegheny County Health Department
