It doesn't have to be this way

Gun violence is a public health epidemic.  Treating epidemics is our job, and physicians will find solutions to end this crisis if we invest in the process to figure out what works.

It's going to take research

We can’t solve a public health crisis without medical evidence.  The only difference between motor vehicle deaths, drownings, HIV, traumatic brain injuries …. every life-threatening problem and gun violence is investment in research.

 

 

We can create a different path

We will find solutions to gun violence when we invest in research.

For 20 years, Congress has refused to appropriate funds.  It’s up to the rest of us.

AFFIRM has built a coalition of clinicians and researchers to partner with private sector financial resources in order to fund public health research of gun violence.

Together we can protect our children, communities, and friends against the epidemic of gun violence.

The public’s health is our job.  Help us get to work.
