Which health systems have signed on to Northwell's gun safety campaign?

Eighty-five health systems are participating in a gun safety campaign aimed at reducing the epidemic of gun deaths across the country.

New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health started the project, Hospitals United, in September. Since then, 84 health systems have signed on, promising to teach their community members the importance of asking family and friends whether they have unlocked guns in their homes. Print, broadcast and digital ads, as well as billboards, have since been popping up around the country.

The idea was spawned by more than 100 healthcare marketing and communications executives who have been meeting regularly for a decade to discuss how they could help curtail gun violence. Dozens of children's hospitals are also taking part.
