Dr. Scherr will discuss the challenges, logistics, response, recovery and long term impact for pre-hospital first responders, emergency personnel, and the community following the October 1, 2017, mass shooting in Las Vegas. From mass casualty incidents such as this, what can we learn about gun violence, prevention, and preparedness? How can this be applied to the campus experience?
