Ruppersberger drafts violence prevention program bill because ‘even small actions are better than thoughts and prayers’One of the leading risk factors for violent injury is a prior violent injury. In a piece published by the Baltimore Sun, Congressman Ruppersberger highlights a program created by doctors at University of Maryland Shock Trauma to reduce the “revolving door” of patients who are victims of gun violence and provide them with critical services. Congressman Ruppersberger is working on legislation to, hopefully, replicate their efforts at hospitals across the country.
