P.O.P. on Youth Violence, Inc

Our Story

In April 2008, Dr. Mike McGee, Chief of the ER, founded Project Outreach and Prevention (POP) on Violence program after witnessing an increase in teenage violence in the Methodist Emergency Department consisting of blunt trauma, as well, as penetrating (gunshots and stab wounds) trauma. In 2014, he partnered with Dr Reuben Rutland, Chief of Trauma and a fellow member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, to develop a 501c3 Not-for-Profit Organization to further expand the benefits of this program. POP Foundation was created as an outreach effort to target youths in NWI and the Chicagoland Area.
