(DECEMBER 28, 2022) Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine Christian Pulcini, M.D., M.Ed., M.P.H., an attending physician in pediatric emergency medicine at the UVM Medical Center and Children’s Hospital, published a commentary titled “We Can Prevent Firearm Tragedies — a Call to Action” in VTDigger.

“I am a pediatric emergency medicine physician, a parent, a firearm injury researcher, a firearm owner, and a concerned citizen,” he wrote. “It is only a matter of time before a firearm tragically takes the life of another one of our children, so I am joining in the call for lawmakers and the governor to act … I also study firearm injury and the long-term trauma it causes on the children who survive a shooting. Based on my experience and knowledge, I know that these injuries are preventable if we adopt and implement evidence-based public health strategies and public policy.”
