The Ward 6 Democratic Committee of Newton and the Mayor’s Crime Prevention Commission invites you to A Conversation on Gun Control and Mental Health. Ruth Balser and Greg Schwartz will offer their ideas on this important subject. Ruth is a clinical psychologist who has used this background extensively to shape public policy. She is an expert in how environment and opportunity shape an individual’s perceptions, and how those perceptions in turn shape that individual’s life. Greg Schwartz is both a doctor and a lawyer. He is a primary care physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and a health policy analyst as well. He will use both sets of skills for this discussion. Other speakers may be announced.
