GWSPH Shows Support and Solidarity for Orlando Victims, Family and Friends with #LoveIs Campaign

In the wake of the mass shooting tragedy in Orlando, Florida, Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH) at the George Washington University came together to grieve, process, heal and move forward. The school worked with students to produce a series of videos that allow their voices to be heard. In an effort to focus on how we can move forward with an emphasis on change, understanding and love, students were asked to share what love is to them.

The series launched with a video from Lynn R. Goldman, MD, MS, MPH, Michael and Lori Milken Dean of Milken Institute SPH, where she expresses her grief at the horrific events, and also calls attention to the need for increased gun violence prevention efforts. 

The school will continue to release videos through the week of June 20, and invites others to share their own videos or thoughts using the hashtag #LoveIs and the school’s handle @GWpublichealth on Twitter or GWpublichealth on Facebook.
