First North American Conference on Shaken Baby Syndrome Attracts World Experts and Shaken Baby Syndrome Victims and Families

MONTREAL, Quebec - September 9, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome (www.dontshake.com) announces its first North American Conference on Shaken Baby Syndrome. This conference brings together physicians, researchers, health care professionals and legal experts as well as members of shaken baby syndrome (SBS) victims' families and victim advocates.

The conference will be held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada at the Delta Centre-Ville Hotel on September 12-15, 2004.

The North American Conference on Shaken Baby Syndrome is an opportunity to learn more about this all-too-prevalent form of child abuse resulting from the violent shaking of an infant or small child. It is the most frequent cause for inflicted traumatic brain injury in the first two years of life.

In the United States alone treatment was sought last year for between 1,200 and 1,400 children, of which 25-20% died as a result of their injuries. And likely, many more cases were not reported.

Program highlights include:

Sunday, September 12

    Pre-Conference Mock Trial (3 to 4 p.m.): media are invited to hear the closing arguments and interview SBS experts: Dr. Randell Alexander, Professor of Pediatrics, Morehouse School of Medicine; Brian Holmgren, lawyer; and Dr Alex Levin, Director, Postgraduate Bioethics Education, University of Toronto.

    Strategies for child abuse and SBS Prevention (6:30 to 7:30 p.m.) Opening keynote address by Dr. Carol Berkowitz, President-elect, American Academy of Pediatrics, the largest pediatric organization in the United States.

Monday, September 13

    Kelly's Family (8:30 to 9:30 a.m.): When Kelly was 6 months old, she was shaken by her babysitter, resulting in permanent brain damage. The damage made her blind, paralyzed on her left side and prone to several seizures a day. She died at age 11. Her parents and sister will talk about Kelly's short and tragic life.

    Paul's Story (11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.): Michel Pilon, a retired police investigator from Montreal and Dr. Gilles Fortin will have Paul explain, on video, how he turned himself into a criminal by shaking to death his beloved baby girl, Erika.

    Retinal hemorrhages (1:30 to 2:30 p.m.): Dr Alex Levin will discuss the link between retinal hemorrhages and SBS.

Tuesday, September 14

    Living with Unjust Death: The Matty Eappen Story, Seven Years Later (8:30 to 9:30 a.m.): Dr. Deborah Eappen is the mother of Matty Eappen, an 8- month-old who died after being shaken by au pair Louise Woodward in February 1997. Dr. Eappen, a comprehensive ophthalmologist, works to prevent SBS and to educate medical professionals on the importance of keeping child abuse on the differential list when evaluating patients.

    Dallen's Story (9:50 to 10:50 a.m.): Aimee Quaife from Nanaimo, British Columbia will discuss the devastating impact that SBS has had on her family. Dallen, at age 10, functions at a one-year-old level.

    Elijah's Story (9:50 to 10:50 a.m.): Emily is the mother of Elijah, a victim of SBS. Elijah, a 16-month-old, was shaken by his biological father and died on Christmas Eve.

    PURPLE Crying (11 a.m. to 12 p.m.): Dr. Ronald Barr will review strategies for dealing with infant crying.

    Ending Child Abuse (1:30 to 2:30 p.m.): Victor Vieth will deliver an inspiring message outlining common sense and innovative proposals for ending child abuse.

All presenters will be available to meet with the media immediately after their presentations in the Vitre Room of the Delta Centre-Ville Hotel located at 777 Rue University Street, Montreal, Quebec, Canada (Ph: 514-879-1370).
