The Arizona Public Health Association (AzPHA) Board of Directors is very proud of a new report released by our affiliate titled, "Gun Violence in Arizona: Data to Inform Prevention Policies"
AzPHA identified firearm violence as a priority in our strategic planning process last year. AzPHA member (and former MN affiliate member!) Allan Williams, MPH, PhD helped mentor Julia Jackman, an MSc Candidate in Global Health Fulbright Study and Research to complete this comprehensive report.
While it paints a bleak picture (the lifetime risk of death by firearm is 1 in 81 Arizonans), this report will serve as an invaluable advocacy tool. And we hope can help serve other APHA affiliates and sections!
