Dr. David Fowler, Chief Medical Examiner for the state of Maryland returns to Shattered Lives to discuss the very important role that medical examiners play in public health matters.

From the CDC:  Each state sets its own standards for what kinds of deaths require investigation and its own professional and continuing education requirements for individuals carrying out these investigations. These different standards can have a broad-reaching public health impact as variations in the collection and reporting of cause-of-death data could hinder public health officials’ ability to conduct accurate mortality surveillance.
