The Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center believes that all children who have been abused or neglected deserve access to a medical exam. Through a partnership with the Medical University of South Carolina Department of Child Abuse Pediatrics, we have board-certified child abuse pediatricians, as well as pediatric nurse practitioners, who provide comprehensive forensic medical exams at Dee Norton. The medical exams identify any medical issues that need attention and provide reassurance to the caregiver and the child regarding any concerns they might have about the child’s body.
Medical Exams provided in 2018
Children can and do heal and together we can make a difference in their lives and in their futures. Make our community a safe and healthy place for children to grow up.
We are pledging to protect any child when there is concern for abuse. Will you?
