Soundbites: Surgeons' paper on firearms

"We see firearm injuries here every week. They're exceedingly common, and they're heartbreaking," says Eileen Bulger, UW Medicine's chief of trauma at Harborview Medical Center and professor of surgery at the University of Washington School of Medicine. 

In downloadable video soundbites (3:58, with b-roll), Bulger provides context to a paper published Nov. 14 by the American College of Surgeons. She was one of 22 co-authors of the organization's recommendations to reduce firearm injury, death and disability. (See  related news release.)
