Rx for Change, Regional One Health’s Hospital Violence Intervention Program (HVIP), was started in August of 2013 in collaboration with Mayor A.C. Wharton’s “Memphis Gun Down.”
Staff Interventionists engage with patients between the ages of 14-40 who live in the Memphis/Shelby County area who present to the Elvis Presley Trauma Center as a result of gun-shot wound (GSW), knife stab wound (KSW) and assaults.
