About this Event

Opening Remarks: 

F. DuBois Bowman, PhD

Dean of University of Michigan School of Public Health

"The Public Health Perspective on Disparities and Firearms Among Children and Teens"

A renowned expert in the statistical analysis of brain imaging data, F. DuBois Bowman is dean of the University of Michigan School of Public Health. Dr. Bowman’s work mines massive data sets and has important implications for mental and neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, schizophrenia, and substance addiction. His research has helped reveal brain patterns that reflect disruption from psychiatric diseases, detect biomarkers for neurological diseases, and determine more individualized therapeutic treatments. Dr. Bowman received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Morehouse College, a Master of Science degree in Biostatistics from the University of Michigan, and a PhD in Biostatistics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Charles Branas, PhD, MS

Chair of Epidemiology at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University

"Beyond Tolerance-Making the Most of the New Era of Gun Violence Prevention Science"

Dr. Branas is Professor and Chair of Epidemiology at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. He has an extensive background conducting research that examines an array of risk factors for firearm-related injuries among children at the individual and community level. Much of his research has focused on place-based spatially-oriented risk factors for firearm carriage and use among children and youth populations.
