Preventing Firearm Injuries among Children and Teens: The State of Science
Keynote Speaker: Debra Houry, Director of National Center of Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) at the CDC
Firearm Safety Among Children and Teens (FACTS) has organized a inaugural research symposium featuring national experts to bring attention and focus to the current science and research on a critical and growing public health issue: prevention of firearm injury in children and teens. We are accepting poster abstracts that will identify innovative research and strategies to further expand and enhance prevention of firearm injury in children and teens. Topics of interest are universal and secondary firearm injury prevention, epidemiology, risk and protective factors, and policy analysis of firearm injury prevention. The conference goals are to share science on the topic and network with colleagues from multiple disciplines (medicine, public health, criminal justice, law and more) as we work together to reduce injury and death by firearms. After review, authors will be notified of the planning committee’s decision by email mid-July. Submit all abstracts electronically.
