Firearms and Suicide
Matthew Miller, Director of Undergraduate Health Sciences Program, Bouvé College of Health Sciences
Dr. Miller, a physician with training in Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology, is an expert in injury and violence prevention, with a special interest in firearm related violence and public health approaches to preventing suicide. Dr. Miller’s suicide scholarship underscores the importance of efforts that reduce not only suffering that leads people to attempt suicide, but also ready access to highly lethal methods used in suicidal acts, such as firearms. Dr. Miller’s work has contributed to the empirical evidence supporting the observation that suicide risk for individuals and suicide rates for populations can be greatly reduced by reducing access to firearms and other highly lethal suicide methods, even in the absence changes in underlying psychiatric illness or even suicidal behavior. In addition to empirical work in injury prevention, Dr. Miller’s scholarship includes work that focuses on the fundamental and often unrecognized tension between research and therapy in clinical trials. Dr. Miller is Assistant Editor of the journal Injury Epidemiology and a recipient of the Excellence in Science Award from the American Public Health Association.
