Starting Wednesday, October 21, the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence, and the Bloomberg American Health Initiative will launch a new Teach-Out on extreme risk protection order laws.

ERPO: A Civil Approach to Gun Violence Prevention Teach-Out will bring together a team of public health, policy, and medical experts to share information about ERPO—what it is, what states have ERPO laws in place, and how it works. Also included will be perspectives from clinicians, law enforcement, and community members about why ERPO is important and how they are using it.

The Teach-Out will be co-led by:

  • Shannon Frattaroli, PhD, MPH: Associate Professor, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research
  • Katherine Hoops, MD, MPH: Assistant Professor of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research
  • Josh Horwitz, JD, Executive Director, Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence; Associate, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

This short online learning experience is free, and will include a live discussion of questions posted to the Teach-Out site by participants on October 30. Interactive elements of the course will be available until November 8.
