MPH Alum and Faculty Co-Author Paper on Gun Safety

MPH Alum and Faculty Co-Author Paper on Gun Safety

Health Services MPH alumnus ('14) Dr. Joe Simonetti has co-authored a new paper on gun safety with School of Public Health faculty Dr. Ali Rowhani-Rahbar (Epidemiology) and Dr. David Grossman (Health Services). The paper, titled "Firearm Storage Practices in Households of Adolescents With and Without Mental Illness" (2017) was published in the Journal of Adolescent Health. The researchers found that "firearm storage practices do not differ based on household mental health risk factors for self-harm."

The study is profiled by Reuters here.
