Many childhood deaths can be prevented with proper education to recognize the signs, symptoms and vulnerabilities that children face in their daily lives. Our goal is to present information, learned skills and knowledge to community leaders, to the physicians and medical communities, first responders, teachers and educators and to students advancing in the medical field that serve and/or will serve the children in the communities we service. We aspire for the community to be prepared with invaluable knowledge to recognize the deadly risks that children face and to be equipped to help prevent the deaths of children associated with these risks.
