The Prevention of School Violence: Creating Environments that are Safe and Conducive to Learning

Tamera Coyne-Beasley, M.D., M.P.H., associate professor of pediatrics and internal medicine, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will work with National Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) and Center for the Prevention of School Violence (CPSV), part of the North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.

Dr. Coyne-Beasley, a former recipient of the William T. Grant Scholars Award, will work with SAVE as an adult co-advisor for a SAVE chapter in a public school as it develops and implements violence and firearm injury prevention activities, among other projects. Her work at CPSV, a state agency in North Carolina, will offer her hands-on experience in policymaking as she works closely with the agency’s director.
