Lucy Chisler to discuss firearms and suicide at Psychiatry Grand Rounds on April 5

Lucy Chisler, D.O., will present “Suicide and Firearms: A Discussion of Current Research and Recommendations” from 12:10 to 1:10 p.m. on Wednesday, April 5, 2023. This broadcast will be held via Zoom/video conferencing. Dr. Chisler is a third-year resident in the UND Psychiatry Residency Training Program.
