Magdalena Cerdá, DrPH MPH, is the Director of the NYU Center for Opioid Epidemiology and Policy, and Associate Professor in the Department of Population Health at NYU Langone Health. In this talk, Dr. Cerdá will present findings from a study where she and colleagues used agent-based models to simulate the potential impact of expanding firearms denial criteria (an approach focused on high-risk groups) and increasing the price of firearms (an approach aimed at the whole population, regardless of risk) on rates of firearm violence. The talk will include a discussion of the implications of high-risk versus population-based approaches to prevention of leading public health problems such as firearm violence.

This study tests whether age at exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACE) affects later outcomes. Only little research has addressed this question, despite both the recent debate on sensitive periods in brain formation and theories in social psychology that predict age-graded effects of ACE. Using Danish administrative data (birth cohorts 1987-1995, N=605,344) and sibling fixed effects models, the current study contributes by estimating the correlation between exposure to ACEs at specific points in childhood and later outcomes such as adolescent anti-social behavior, drug use and mental health problems
