WHYY's "Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane"

To close out its series on gun violence in Philadelphia, "Radio Times" welcomed Marla Davis Bellamy, director of Philadelphia CeaseFire and the Center for Bioethics, Urban Health and Policy at Temple's School of Medicine. CeaseFire is an innovative hospital-based violence reduction program combining analysis of public health statistics with active intervention from community members. "At CeaseFire, we treat violence as a disease through a public health approach. We see perpetrators of violence as carriers and we intervene to try to stop the spread of the disease," said Bellamy.
