Emergency room physician Dr. Chris Barsotti joins me for a compelling conversation about the epidemic of gun violence and his vivid account of dealing with it on the front lines. He is also the co-founder of AFFIRM with Dr. Megan Ranney (listen to her appearance on What Matters Most). This is a powerful show that left me deeply moved throughout our exchanges.

The American Foundation for Firearm Injury Reduction in Medicine (AFFIRM) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation comprised of healthcare professionals and researchers working together to find lasting solutions to curb the epidemic of firearm violence across the United States. Our funding goes directly to research that will inform protocols for everyone working on the front lines of healthcare, develop innovative solutions that connect our network to other first responders and stakeholders, and create education and information for healthcare professionals and the public.
