Firearm Violence: Science, Policy, & Politics

  • The Terrace Room, Claudia Cohen Hall 249 South 36th Street Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States (map)

Firearm violence is a contentious societal problem and carries a significant public health burden. Dialogue is polarized and funding for science is restricted. Yet researchers from many disciplines at Penn focus their research on reducing firearm violence and improving outcomes of violent injuries  – by conducting rigorous science and producing factual information. 

This event will include a series of case scenarios highlighting the intersection of science, policy, and politics, and facilitate an open respectful and scholarly conversation about how to decrease the burden of firearm violence.
