Their publication “American Gun Death and Injury in America” will be included in the volume, and provide an overview of America’s gun violence epidemic. It also discusses the need for an interdisciplinary approach to prevent gun injury & death.

Congratulations to Professors Dineen, Raissian and Crisfasi! We look forwarding to reading in November.
