Faculty Seminar: A Case-Crossover Study of Adolescents' Activities and Triggers of Gun Assault

Ann Arbor MI 02-19-2019 02-19-2019

Douglas J. Wiebe, PhD, Director of the CDC-funded Penn Injury Science Center, and Professor, Biostatistics and Epidemiology at Perelman School of Medicine. Dr. Wiebe will focus on how he and his colleagues used GIS-assisted activity path interviews and mapped data of the urban landscape to investigate how situations young people encounter and the places they go over their daily activities relate to the likelihood of violence. Study subjects were 10-24 year-olds in Philadelphia: 143 assault patients who had been shot with a firearm and 206 assault patients injured with other types of weapons from hospital emergency departments, and 283 controls from the community. This detailed set of data on activity paths and the context of each situation and environment that each subject encountered provided novel opportunities to learn about young peoples’ activities and triggers of violence in the urban landscape. Please note, attendees may join the faculty seminar in person or via the live webcast. To join the webcast, please register for the event using the ticket type “live-webcast.” You will receive log-in information prior to the event.
