Even amid a pandemic that kept many Americans isolated, gun-related deaths reached a new high of 43,530 in 2020, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
Nearly all of these deaths are avoidable. So, should health systems invest in preventing them and addressing their root cause, like they do for medical conditions?
