As gun violence continues to rise throughout Philadelphia, doctors are saying enough. Some in the Philadelphia medical community came together with city and state leaders to not only discuss the violence but share plans on how to stop it.
The Penn Injury Science Center is delving deeper into the science behind stopping the violence.
“How do we stop an injury? Or how do we stop a gunshot before it starts? But also how do we best treat the injury and provide the best care and trauma support to those in need?” Sara Solomon, Deputy Director of Penn Injury Science Center, said.
