The intersection between firearms and health care

The U.S. represents the second-highest number of gun deaths in the world. AFFIRM at the Aspen Institute (AAI) is dedicated to decreasing firearm-related harms, injuries, and deaths using a practical, scalable, and immediate health-based approach.

Christopher Barsotti, MD, FACEP, FAAEM, Co-Founder and Program Director of AAI, Megan Ranney, MD, MPH, FACEP, Co-Founder and Senior Strategic Advisor of AAI, and Pamela Browner White, Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer and Senior Vice President of Communications at ABIM and the ABIM Foundation, discussed AAI’s approach to firearm injury as a public health issue. Dr. Barsotti and Dr. Ranney also shed light on their work to reframe the national conversation surrounding firearm-related injuries and shared how they’ve built trust with gun owners and non-gun owners alike through community-led action groups.
