Ashley Williams, MD, joined Joe and Chelsey on Studio10 with more information on Project Inspire. It is a program in our area that encourages young men and women to avoid gun violence.

The following information was provided by USA Health:

Gun violence is a major contributor to years of life lost in the United States. Hope lies in the fact that firearm deaths and firearm-related injuries are preventable. Project Inspire is a community-wide intervention that aims to reduce gun violence and prevent deaths and injuries related to guns.

Questions:

1. As a trauma surgeon, how much violence do you see on a day-to-day basis?

2. How do we deal with such a big problem?

3. What is Project Inspire, and why is it so important for the community?

4. How can people in the community get involved?
