In an interview with the Daily Iowan (DI), PPC researchers Corinne Peek-Asa, Mark Berg, and James Wo discussed the gap between gun violence in the United States, and the amount of research and education dedicated to curbing the trend.

The goal of their research is to draw more attention to the burden that gun violence puts on public health, and to encourage more research and better policies around gun violence. To read the full story in the DI, click here.
