Firearm Violence: Research and Action

Presentation | September 21 | 5-7 p.m. | Boalt Hall, School of Law, 110, reception to follow in West Courtyard

Firearm injury is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, 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.

Join Professors Wintemute and Cerda as they review current research on firearm violence as a health problem, highlight successful interventions, and suggest possibilities for the future.

This talk is part of the 2016-2017 UC Berkeley School of Public Health Dean’s Speaker Series and the Human Rights Center's Gun Violence in America event series.
