ACEP recently joined with 80 national medical, public health, and research organizations to send a joint letter to House and Senate leaders regarding CDC funding for firearms injury prevention. In the letter, we asked the leadership to provide $50 million in funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to conduct public health research into firearm morbidity and mortality prevention as consider appropriations for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019.
