International Conference to Help Families and Professionals - November Organization Spotlight

One of the most important goals of Keane Law Firm is to protect our children, and raise awareness of Shaken Baby Syndrome through prevention efforts.  In the process, Keane Law has been able to come into contact with a phenomenal Organization working each and everyday for the betterment of our children, and providing support to the families that are sadly affected by Shaken Baby Syndrome.

We are excited to present to you our November Organization Spotlight, The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome.  The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome comes with a mission, a mission shown Internationally,  “To educate and train parents and professionals, and to conduct research that will prevent the shaking and abuse of infants in the United States”

Shaken Baby Syndrome is the leading cause of death in abusive head trauma cases. Shaken Baby Syndrome is a type of inflicted traumatic brain injury that happens when a baby is violently shaken, and it is estimated 1200 to 1400 children are injured or killed as a result of shaking every year in the United States.

Recently we had the pleasure of speaking with Danielle Vazquez from The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome.  Danielle is the Conference Coordinator for the Center, and has been doing so for approximately 4 1/2 years. Though Danielle is not personally affected by Shaken Baby Syndrome, working in the field of prevention and awareness of SBS, Danielle says has been the most rewarding to see the groups of families affected come together, and work together in prevention of SBS.  As the Conference Coordinator, Danielle works restlessly to plan the Conference, organizing special presentations and workshops for a broad range of Professionals, as well as the abstract presentations presented by the families affected, and ensuring scholarships are offered and available to families who plan to attend but need the financial assistance to do so.
