Beyond the White Coat
Times are changing, and along with it, academic medicine must change, too. The Beyond the White Coat series dives into issues affecting the academic medicine community at-large, including how we have adapted due to the global pandemic, and how the community is coming together to address racism head-on.
The most recent tragic murders throughout the United States at the hands of gun violence are heartbreaking. These assaults once again vividly illustrate the all-too-familiar consequences of how gun violence continues to plague our nation, and they are also a reminder of how homicides, suicides, and unintentional injuries with firearms take an overwhelming daily toll on our communities. These preventable tragedies will continue to be inevitable as long as lawmakers continue to choose inaction over reasonable protections to keep our children and our communities safe.
In the latest episode of “Beyond the White Coat,” AAMC President and CEO David J. Skorton, MD, and Roger A. Mitchell Jr., MD, chair of the Department of Pathology at Howard University College of Medicine, have a compelling and informative conversation on gun violence as a public health crisis and how the academic medicine community can come together to address prevention.
