Robert Gore is an emergency physician and founder of the Kings Against Violence Initiative (KAVI). Drawing from 7+ years of experience, Robert hopes to reach all NYC frontline workers — police officers, healthcare workers, educators, firefighters — with a new virtual training program in holistic care and trauma-informed response. Robert envisions a New York where providers and recipients of care have the tools to transform trauma, leading to better physical and mental health outcomes.
