Show Notes

After the tragic event at Mercy Hospital in November 2018 that led to the death of 3 individuals "Officer Jimenez, Dr. Tamara O'Neal & pharmacy resident Dayna Less", the ACP released a position paper titled "Reducing Firearm Injuries and Deaths in the United States: A Position Paper From the American College of Physicians".

We interview the lead author Dr. Sue Bornstein and talked more about the ACP position, their approach, and their view about this important public health issue.
