Enough is Enough: Let’s Take a Stand Against Gun Violence
We have a public health crisis of gun violence in this country that has grown increasingly worse over recent years. Michael Dowling, President and Chief Executive Officer of Northwell Health, would argue that we have failed to provide for the health and wellness of our communities as this crisis grows unabated. Health care CEOs and the 18 million men and women who are part of the nation's health care workforce can be an incredibly powerful voice for change, if we choose to see this as our responsibility and obligation. Gun violence is a national tragedy that demands we as healthcare leaders use our political capital and advocacy, the power of our lobby and the financial weight of the $3.5 trillion health care industry to combat gun violence in America. Enough is enough, the question is will we take a stand?
