Unintentional Injury is 100% Preventable. Safe Storage is Responsible Gun Ownership. 

We need to empower clinicians to speak with patients about methods for Safe Storage. #EndFamilyFire

As a doctor and public health expert, grateful for Jonathan trying to explain how one should look at the statistics. 91 days folks, 91 days.

“I’m talking about death as a proportion of population, that’s where the U.S. is really bad” @jonathanvswan

Please follow  @ThisIsOurLane. Send the  @NRA a clear message that we value the doctors who save lives more than the tools that take them.

Does not seem right that  @NRA has over 800k followers &  @ThisIsOurLane - Drs who treat gun violence victims & care about gun safety - have only 30k followers. Let’s change that.

Proud to be in President  @Barack Obama’s first wave of 2020 endorsements. We have a lot of work to do to bring home a victory in November, but this election is too important for anyone to sit it out. Pitch in today at http://www.drcameronwebb.com

I’m proud to endorse this diverse and hopeful collection of thoughtful, empathetic, and highly qualified Democrats. If you’re in one of their districts or states, make sure you vote for them this fall. And if you can, vote early—by mail or in person.

As  @Joe Biden says here, "the words of the President matter." The manifesto written by the El Paso shooter echoed Trump’s hateful and racist language. Donald Trump endangers our communities. We must rise above his hate.  #LoveForElPaso

One year ago, a white supremacist armed with a semi-automatic rifle targeted the people of El Paso. He thought his hatred of Latinos and immigrants would prove more powerful than the culture and vibrancy of the community.

He was wrong.

Thank you  @Mimi Rocah, we appreciate your support.

As a public health practioner, doctor, and son of a dad whom I love so much, I’m so impressed with the moral courage it took to publicly speak out against your fathers reckless behavior. Thank you for setting the right example. 👏👏

Years ago,  @Brady | United Against Gun Violence joined  @Joe Biden in helping pass a ban on assault weapons. Meanwhile, Trump has refused to regulate these weapons of war, even after the massacres in El Paso & Dayton. When Biden is President, we will reinstate this ban & save lives.  #TeamJoe  #EndGunViolence

Please disseminate the message that with surgeons’ help the  @American College of Surgeons is working to help us help our patients  @Tom Varghese Jr. MD, MS, FACS,  @Justin B. Dimick  @TXAggieBurnDoc  @Dr. Deanna Attai  @Niraj J. Gusani, MD  @Patricia L Turner, MD, MBA, FACS  @Ben Nwomeh MD  @paula ferrada  @Mary L. Brandt, MD  @Neil Floch MD  @Joseph Sakran @shafiahmedy5  @Sharmila Dissanaike

The recent appropriations package (H.R. 7617) that passed the  #USHouse 217-197 included several  @American College of Surgeons supported efforts such as exploring important  #patient ID solutions and $11.5 million in funding for the  #MissionZero grant program. We now urge  #USSenate action.

Important read from ⁦ @Scott Gottlieb, MD and former⁩ FDA commissioners: Blood plasma might be the covid-19 treatment we need https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/08/03/4-former-fda-commissioners-blood-plasma-might-be-...

"We may not be able to stop something like this from happening again. But we can make it hard[er.] My son's death cannot be in vain." 

We are with you, Judge Esther Salas. Easy access to guns puts us all at risk. We urgently need reforms. #EndGunViolence

Today is the one year remembrance of the El Paso shooting.   We lost 23 people that day.  All that these innocent people did was go to shop at a WalMart.  We can do something about this and following the election of @JoeBiden we will.

 @Eric Feigl-Ding If you have to wait 10-14 days for an appointment to get tested, then have to wait another 10-14 days to get results... the tracing becomes impossible. And you also have to trace and account for the contacts during the incubation period... the testing becomes largely pointless.

As a patient & patient advocate, I've only been effective because of YOUR support. Thank you to ALL of you who supported my advocacy in DC these last 3 years & believed in my efforts to enhance health care &  #ProtectOurCare I will continue to keep fighting, & NEVER GIVE UP!💜💪

COVID19 disinformation is everywhere. And it's undermining our response in the US. Below I tackle some of the most commonly mischaracterized things about  #COVID19. These are the facts. So get it on your aunt's Facebook wall or print it out and put it in the break-room! THREAD

Did you know most Americans think Trump supports universal background checks?

But it’s been a year since the El Paso & Dayton mass shootings—Trump has done nothing but turn his back on the American people.

It’s time to elect a #GunSafetyPresident.

In the past day I have counseled a half a dozen friends on how to manage a COVID + exposure AND brought my own daughter in for testing. The decision fatigue is real. This is hard. I can feel people giving up. And we haven’t even opened up schools.

Trump has no healthcare plan. Never has. Never will. 

The only healthcare “plan” that @realDonaldTrump has is to TAKE AWAY our coverage.🤬

VOTE HIM OUT.
