Dr. Ronal Serpas, professor of practice, criminology and justice at Loyola University New Orleans and former police superintendent of New Orleans, is the speaker for the Third Annual Leeuwenhoek Lecture, hosted by Cure Violence and University of Illinois at Chicago.

Dr. Serpas will speak on the need for new approaches to address violence in America, such as the public health approach to violence developed by Cure Violence, and by training police officers to recognize the differences in human development and response that follow exposure to violence to encourage a ‘guardian’ response by officers.
