Positive Childhood Alliance of North Carolina (PCANC) is excited to announce the launch of our brand new Prioritizing Child Maltreatment Prevention: A Toolkit for Medical Professionals!

We know medical professionals play a vital role in the well-being of children and families. But sometimes, finding local resources for families facing challenges, or understanding the science behind preventing child maltreatment can be overwhelming. This toolkit bridges that gap, providing North Carolina’s pediatricians, family practice doctors, and other healthcare providers with the tools they need to be champions for healthy childhoods.
