Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

Gun violence has become a devastating problem in the United States. To put it into perspective, there’s about 120 firearms per 100 people in the United States. It may feel like we have no control over making changes, but there are steps that we can take. The number one place to start is educating ourselves about gun violence. We need to know more about it, and understand how we can reduce these fatalities in our everyday culture.
We all want to make our country safer for our children and for ourselves. That’s why I’m bringing Dr. Katelyn Jetelina on the podcast. In this episode Dr. Katelyn Jetelina and I discuss statistics, demographics of shooters, how the stats in the United States compares to other countries, and so much more.
Dr. Katelyn Jetelina is a violence epidemiologist, biostatistician, wife, and mom of two little girls. During the day she works at a nonpartisan health policy think tank and is engaged as a scientific communication consultant by the CDC, and at night she writes an independent newsletter called Your Local Epidemiologist, which covers a wide array of public health topics including gun violence.
