The fourth annual event honoring V-Day will take place on Thursday, Feb. 7, 4-5:30 p.m., in Bornstein Amphitheater. V-Day is a celebration of female empowerment and is held to recognize, and begin to remedy, issues of violence against women and girls. The Brigham event will occur in concert with hundreds of other V-Day events taking place nationally and internationally.

Building on the momentum of the #ThisIsOurLane movement, this year’s panel discussion, “Gun Violence and Intimate Partner Violence: Complex Intersections,” will explore whether health care providers should screen for gun ownership, the relationship between gun violence and interpersonal relationships, root causes of violence in our communities and the role of the health care system in addressing these issues.

The panel will feature speakers Thea James, MD; Charles Morris, MD, MPH; Mardi Chadwick-Balcom, JD; and Matthew Miller, MD, MPH, ScD. It will be moderated by Wanda McClain, MPA.

The event is free and open to the public. It will also be webcast.
