With over 30,000 deaths in America from gun-related homicides and suicides each year, Dr. Susan B. Sorenson of the University of Pennsylvania is asking the question: how can we use data on gun violence to inform the causes of—and solutions for—this public health crisis? On Thursday, October 19, join Dr. Sorensen in conversation with Franklin Institute Chief Bioscientist Dr. Jayatri Das for an in-depth discussion on the epidemiology and prevention of gun violence. In this compelling installment of The Franklin Institute Speaker Series, learn about common misconceptions around firearm use, the societal influences on violence, practical strategies for prevention, and how a novel partnership with the Philadelphia Police Department could be a nationwide model for the future.

This event in The Franklin Institute Speaker Series is free and open to the public, with advance registration required. Details here: bit.ly/2wBnrbO
