SAVIR E-News: July 2022

Reflections from the President

I was honored to represent SAVIR at the 2nd Medical Summit on Firearm Injury Prevention, September 10th and 11th , 2022 in Chicago, IL. The Summit was hosted by the American College of Surgeons in collaboration with the American College of Physicians, the American College of Emergency Physicians, and the Council of Medical Specialty Societies. This important event was a follow up to 1st Summit held in 2019 which engaged over 45 major medical and injury prevention organizations in developing initiatives to support firearm injury prevention and 9 official Consensus Statements published in the Proceedings (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31108194/).
