Scott Charles, MAPP, Trauma Outreach Coordinator at Temple University Hospital, spoke to Generocity for a story based on the report, “Brotherly Love: The Health of Black Men and Boys in Philadelphia,” which was recently released by the city’s Office of Public Engagement. The report found that black men have the lowest life expectancy of any group in Philadelphia, and that homicide is the leading cause of death for black men between 15 and 34. Scott described, among other topics, the Cradle to Grave and Turning Point programs he co-created with Amy J. Goldberg, MD, FACS, George S. Peters, MD and Louise C. Peters Chair and Professor of Surgery at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and Surgeon-in-Chief of Temple University Health System.
