A Kings County Medical Center emergency room doctor has started an anti-violence project and is mentoring Brooklyn students, according to News 12 Brooklyn.

Dr. Rob Gore began his Kings Against Violence Initiative to help at-risk students handle conflict and develop skills to prepare them for success in the classroom and in the world at large. The organization helps young people at Wingate Educational Campus in Crown Heights and other schools throughout Brooklyn with weekly mentoring sessions. “Helping people heal and helping people understand is a major step in the road to recovery in people who are experiencing and have been impacted by violent trauma,” Gore told News 12 Brooklyn.
