This examination of gang violence and public health was broadcast Oct. 30, 2003 on "These Days," a program produced by KPBS public radio in San Diego (www.kpbs.org). The program was produced after Kristin Currin (firstname.lastname@example.org), a student-journalist who contributes to KPBS, gathered information on the issue at the Sept. 13 forum called "Gang Violence as a Public Health Issue."
The program includes host Tom Fudge and two of the medical representatives from the forum – Dr. Deborah Prothrow-Stith, nationally known for her gang violence prevention research and Dr. Marvin Epps, a psychiatrist and authority on gang-related pathologies.
