Dr. Garen Wintemute & Magdalena Cerdá: Firearm Violence

April 6, 2017

Firearm injury is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., and disproportionately affects black men between the ages of 15 and 34. Including homicides and suicides, the United States experiences, on average, the equivalent of one death by firearm every 16 minutes.

In this lecture, Professors Wintemute and Cerdá review current research on firearm violence as a health problem, highlight successful interventions, and suggest possibilities for the future.
