Nearly 5 children die each day

due to child abuse and neglect

Child abuse and neglect crosses all cultural, geographical and socioeconomic groups. It is widely considered to be underreported.

In this free six-week series, pediatric care providers will refresh on best practices, learn new skills, and practice evaluating different physical injuries for signs of abuse. Sessions will address physical symptoms that may present such as bruising and fractures, as well as understanding the role state systems have in responding to reported cases of abuse. Presenters and panelists include expert child abuse pediatricians, emergency room providers, and child welfare professionals.
