Emerging Trends 2022


Firearm deaths and injuries are on the rise across the nation, and Central Ohio is not immune to this unfortunate trend.

In an effort to address this, both the City of Columbus and Franklin County have declared gun violence a public health crisis but still, there are daily occurrences of firearm deaths and injury interspersed throughout our local health care system. They're in the emergency department, operating rooms, rehab facilities, hospital beds, etc.

The CMA recognizes that physicians are stakeholders in this crisis, and they have a role to play in addressing it, just as they did with tobacco and cars. So, to better understand what is happening in our community the CMA has invited four experts to discuss firearm violence, suicides, and accidents.
