Daniel Webster on ADDRESSING GUN VIOLENCE AS A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE

October 30, 2021

Daniel Webster is one of the country's leading experts on addressing the threat of gun violence in this country. As the Director of the Center for Gun Violence Prevention and Policy at Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Webster focuses on the public health aspect of addressing this epidemic.  I  am grateful that Dr. Webster joined me to talk about this important topic. Dr. Webster's biography is impressive, and I've shared it below for your perusal. 

This was an illuminating, important conversation, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to share it with you. I admit, the public health aspect of controling gun violence is not one I had thought much about; it's clearly time to think about it a whole lot more. 

Thanks to Dr. Webster, and I hope you enjoy our conversation. See you soon!
