ACS: Medical, public health organizations form coalition to address firearm violence

Editor's Note

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) on March 6 announced that a group of leading medical and public health professional organizations are forming the Healthcare Coalition for Firearm Injury Prevention.

The group is using a comprehensive public health approach to advance firearm injury prevention through education of healthcare professionals, advocacy, and community-centered programs.

Because healthcare professionals see the impact of firearm violence in their communities every day, their perspective allows them to propose solutions to reduce firearm-related injuries, deaths, and disabilities, the announcement says.
