Leslie Oyama – Child abuse internet education initiative

Category: Student

Created a comprehensive website that can be used by providers, families, teenagers, and younger children to gain appropriate practical information about child abuse and neglect and their specific role in addressing this problem, as well as step-by-step guidance on what to do if they are facing a situation of this nature. A  "one stop shop" - a site where  physicians can quickly access (or link to) any information they are likely to need, where parents or concerned adults can find objective facts and specific instructions on what to do if they suspect abuse (or what to expect if someone else has filed a  report), and where teenagers and younger children can get age-appropriate information and guidance on what to do if they are  in an abusive situation or if they are worried about a friend.
