Before the horrific mass shooting in Orlando, before the U.S. Senate filibuster, U.S. House sit-in, or before the American Medical Association's call for more federal funding into gun violence research, two UW Medicine doctors were quietly conducting a rare study (without federal dollars) into what happens to gunshot victims after they are treated and leave Harborview Medical Center.
