"The problem of gun violence in cities across the country, including Philadelphia, has become a public health epidemic. The key to ending such an epidemic is to adopt a public health approach that engages communities and focuses on behavioral change."

- Marla Davis Bellamy, JD, MGA, Co-Director of The Center for Bioethics, Urban Health and Policy and Philadelphia CeaseFire  

Temple University’s Center for Bioethics, Urban Health and Policy (CBUHP) is committed to defining and addressing the ethical challenges of urban health care, public health status, and policy.

The Center’s interdisciplinary membership includes community residents, faculty, students and staff representing numerous schools within Temple University and the affiliates of Temple University Health System – all working to improve health status for vulnerable urban populations and to position Temple University as a nationally recognized expert in the field of urban health and bioethics.
