WEBINAR SESSION 1: Preventing Abuse through Sentinel Injuries
April 6 • 1:00 – 4:00 pm

Speaker: Jonathon Thackeray, MD, FAAP, Chief Medical Community Health Officer at Dayton Children’s Hospital 
Details: Nearly 1 in 3 abused children has been seen previously by a medical provider with an injury that was not recognized as abuse. These injuries, known as “sentinel injuries”, are often minor – an isolated bruise or a small lesion to the mouth, for example. Because they often appear so seemingly minor, however, these sentinel injuries may not be recognized as abuse. In one afternoon, experts will provide evidence-based education and resources to improve your ability to recognize and prevent further injuries.
