Firearm Deaths, We Can Do Better!
" A new study in The Journal of Pediatrics found that states with stricter gun laws and laws requiring universal background checks for firearm purchase had lower firearm-related pediatric mortality rates. This study suggests that common sense gun laws like universal background checks can improve child mortality. But there is variation from state to state on firearm legislation."

Read CMA member Dr. A. Mehran Mostafavifar's blog on the importance of firearm safety and the two Ohio House Bills around that  
Vaccine Advocacy from All Physicians is Vital
" All physicians should feel empowered to recommend immunizations. They aren’t just the realm of primary care providers (whether pediatric and/or adult.)"

Check out Dr. Sean Gallagher's article on the need for all physicians to recommend vaccines, no matter their specialty, and make their voices by advocating for immunizations.

It's National Immunization Awareness Month and the CMA will be bringing you information and stories on the importance of vaccines and how you can assist in raising awareness.
