Gun violence–a pediatric surgeon’s point of view

A  prior guest on our podcast, Jonathan Groner is a pediatric surgeon and the medical director of the Center for Pediatric Trauma Research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital who regularly treats Columbus children for gunshot wounds. For Groner, gun violence isn’t some distant problem to debate from the comfort of his home. For him, it’s very personal. Listen to him describe the prevalence of gun violence in low-income neighborhoods, the racial disparities associated with gun violence, accidental shootings in the home, and our state legislature’s indifference to the problem.

We’re running a brief survey for our listeners, and we’d love to hear from you.  Go to and give us your input. It takes just two minutes–literally.
