Plenary: The Epidemic of Firearm Injuries in Children: Can We Bend the Curve?
Eric Fleegler, MD, MPH Boston Children’s Hospital
Lois Lee, MD, MPH Boston Children’s Hospital

Firearm injuries continue to be an epidemic among American children. More than 3,000 children die of firearm injuries annually, making firearms the second leading cause of death in children between ages 1 and 19. Research on firearm injuries in the United States has been impeded by Congressional legislation. Still some excellent research has been done using available statistics and advanced epidemiological methods. This Plenary will discuss the role of research in "bending the curve" of epidemic firearm morbidity and mortality in American Children.
