Canadian Doctors for Protection from Guns (CDPG) – Schulich Chapter
The Schulich Chapter of the Canadian Doctors for Protection from Guns (CDPG) is a grassroots organization concerned about the increasing public health impact of firearms. We represent medical students and physicians working in collaboration with nurses, paramedics, rehabilitation specialists, psychologists, researchers, students and other front-line health care professionals. We have all witnessed first-hand the emotional and physical trauma and devastation caused by guns. CDPG calls for a comprehensive public policy response to this crisis in our communities, including preventative tools to reduce gun use and their consequences on youth violence, domestic abuse, and suicide. The Schulich Chapter of CDPG will run initiatives to raise awareness within the medical school community including guest speaker events, workshops, research, and advocacy campaigns.
Through education and advocacy, we hope to enact change!
