Firearm injuries and deaths are a serious public health concern in the U.S. Firearm-related injuries and fatalities account for tens of thousands of premature deaths of adults and children each year and significantly increase the burden of injury and disability. Firearm injuries are also costly to the healthcare system, accounting for nearly $3 billion in emergency department and inpatient care each year.

Join the Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice in DC on October 17 and 18 for a workshop exploring healthcare systems’ role in preventing firearm injuries and fatalities. Presentations and discussions will feature evidence and best practices by health systems, hospital systems, and health care professionals. They will also examine opportunities for healthcare systems to improve intervention efficacy by working with communities. Speakers will focus on primary prevention and will frame the scope of future research on healthcare system interventions.
