Prevent Child Abuse America in the news. Supportive family members. Healthy kids. And The New York Times.

Dr. Janet Rosenzweig, the Vice President for Research and 
Programs at Prevent Child Abuse America, was recently quoted in The New York Times talking about healthy kids in an article titled "After 2 Deaths, New York City Adopts New Strategy to Protect Homeless Children." You can read the article in its entirety here and we have pasted an excerpt below. We are also interested in your thoughts on the article, Dr. Rosenzweig's response, and the role you think community members can play in the lives of the children and families discussed in this article. Thanks.

“We prefer not to look at child abuse from the medical model of finding a sick person and treating them,” Dr. Rosenzweig said. “We prefer the inoculation model of preparing families and communities to raise safe and healthy kids.”
