They believe gun violence should be treated as a public health issue. Interviews with Drs.

Dr. Nada Jabado – a pediatric hemato-oncologist at the RI-MUC - and colleagues at the Montreal Children's Hospital and McGill University discovered a genetic mutation that causes a disease that looks like cancer and then connected their patient cases with others from across the globe carrying the same mutation.
