The First Signs of Abuse: Minor Trauma, Major Concern

The first signs of abuse are often so minor they are easily missed. Join guest speaker Dr. Jonathan Thackeray as he reviews common “sentinel injuries” and provides strategies to the community in identifying and responding to them with the goal of preventing recurrent injuries to children.

Dr. Thackeray is a child abuse pediatrician and is the Chief Medical Community Health Officer at Dayton Children’s Hospital and Vice-Chair of Pediatrics at the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine.

The Robert Hart, MD Lectureship is presented by the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria in conjunction with Children's Hospital of Illinois and the Pediatric Resource Center. For more information, please contact Stephanie at 309-655-4242 or by email at smaho3@uicomp.uic.edu
