Twitter has opened up a world of possibility to build a network of colleagues across sectors. After Parkland I became much more outspoken on social media about the issue of gun violence as a public health crisis. In my social media activism, I connected with a group of physicians who were also speaking out about gun violence prevention.
I am honored to have been asked to write a blog from the perspective of a school nurse on the impact of gun violence in school for AFFIRM Research. Here is a link to the blog post: AFFIRM Perspectives: No More Empty Desks.
My deepest gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Megan Ranney for the opportunity to write a blog post for AFFIRM, Dr. Nikita Joshi for her expert editing skills, and Dr. Heather Sher for connecting us.
Please support the important research efforts of AFFIRM by making a financial contribution. https://affirmresearch.org/strategy/
Together we can protect our children, communities, and friends against the epidemic of gun violence.
The public’s health is our job. Help us get to work.
