Healthbytes - Gun safety saves lives

As a general surgeon taking call in the emergency room, I see a fair number of gunshot wounds. I would much rather try to prevent them than treat them. So as the summer season gets closer, gun safety ranked high on my list of things to write about. As a target shooter and gun owner, I am very serious about this.

Mission Accomplished

Wallace Jr. challenged the graduates to dream, reach their potential, take risks and to be people of integrity.
