Weekly Meeting - Shaken Baby Syndrome Programme - Dr. Marcie, Toronto Sick Children’s Hospital

Jim Low introduced the Shaken Baby Syndrome Steering Committee and thanked them for their support. Dr. Mian educated us on the physical symptoms of a child that has been shaken and explained the irreversible damage that is caused to the brain. She explained that there are also findings that victims of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) may be a result of shaking. This can happen to anyone, and we must provide the resources to our caregivers to help prevent this from happening. Dr. Mian thanked us for our Club's part in preventing this tragedy.
