Cathy Barber, MPA, directs the Means Matter Campaign at the Harvard School of Public Health’s Injury Control Research Center (HICRC). She led the effort to design and pilot-test a prototype for the Centers for Disease Control’s National Violent Death Reporting System and co-founded the National Center for Suicide Prevention Training (www.ncspt.org). The goal of the Means Matter Campaign is to educate suicide prevention coalitions about the link between firearms and suicide. Ms. Barber’s interests focus on developing injury surveillance systems and using data from those systems to inform public policy. Her Masters in Public Administration is from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
