As a survivor of gun violence, Joe spends a significant portion of his time as a clinician, researcher, and advocate with a primary goal of reducing firearm death and disability in America. To this end, he recently founded the organization Docs Demand Action (@docsdemand), a platform to help unite healthcare providers and provide a strong voice in ending gun violence.
