Dr. Carter’s research focuses on firearm injury prevention, specifically the development and implementation of emergency department (ED)‐based interventions to decrease substance use and firearm behaviors among high‐risk urban youth populations. He has led several projects examining the public health problem of firearm violence, including studies characterizing illegal firearm possession among youth, firearm violence outcomes among ED populations, and the unique characteristics of firearm conflicts that differentiate them from other types of peer violence. Dr. Carter has served as a member of the Technical Advisory Group focused on developing a firearm research agenda for the American College of Emergency Physicians. His work has also focused on examining policy‐level interventions influencing alcohol‐impaired driving, and he was instrumental in the development of a global health project for the training of medical students, nurses, and post‐graduate physician colleagues in Emergency Medicine in Ghana. Dr. Carter is the director of the CDC-funded U-M Injury Prevention Center and serves as the content lead for its youth violence research group.
