Bio: Daniel is a professor of health policy at Johns Hopkins University, where he directs the Center for Gun Policy & Research and also serves as director of research for the Center for the Prevention of Youth Violence. For the past 25 years, his research, teaching, and policy work have focused on the prevention of violence, suicide, and deaths from drug overdoses. Policymakers at the local, state, and national levels have relied on his research to guide efforts to reduce gun violence. He lives in Bethesda, Maryland, with his wife (Jessica), son (Ben,19), and daughter (Susan,16).

Influence of Carroll County Schools: Daniel's years in the Carroll County School District helped him become an independent thinker and prepare to take on big challenges with determination and confidence.

We in the Carroll County School District are proud of our alumni, which is why we launched a project to highlight distinguished graduates of our school district. Distinguished alumni have a framed poster on the walls of each school to inspire current students to do great things with their lives.
