Speakers: Kristyn Jeffries, MD and Shayla Sullivant, MD

Nationally, an average of 20 children per day are treated for firearm related injuries. As healthcare providers, we must engage in the tough conversations. We must ask the important questions about firearm safety and injury prevention with our patients and their families. Are guns in the house? How are they stored? Many resources are available in our community to help, but our patients and families need real, tangible solutions to keep their children safe. This program will explore your role in saving our patients’ lives from firearm injuries.
