“We are really excited about these new additions to the board,” said Dr. Christopher Greeley, Board Chair, Prevent Child Abuse America. “While, we are doing great things as a board and as an organization, we can always do more and be smarter about what we do. Our focus is to continue to think 5, 10, and 20 years ahead. To accomplish our goals, we need to continue to bring big thinkers into the fold. We need people who understand that a healthy family remains the focus of a healthy child, and that we all play a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Our new board members will come not only with great ideas, but an ability to translate these ideas into action.”
