Each year, the Cook County Health (CCH) cares for more than 1,000 patients who have been injured by gun violence. The impact of gun violence on CCH’ patients, community and staff is all too real. As a provider of care and steward of public health, CCH must advocate for policies that uphold the health and safety of the residents of Cook County.
