Dr. Jahan Fahimi will discuss firearm violence prevention from his perspective as an Emergency Room physician. In his talk, Dr. Fahimi will review the history of firearm violence in the US and provide a conceptual framework for addressing the firearm violence epidemic.

After his residency in Emergency Medicine at Highland Hospital in Oakland, CA, he received a research fellowship focused on healthcare utilization and social determinants of health in emergency care.

Dr. Fahimi is currently working on the development of educational competencies for healthcare professionals to address firearm violence at the bedside.
