The Pediatric Resource Center educates professionals in the state of Illinois about identifying, treating and preventing child abuse.
Illinois Medical Network of Child Advocates Heading link
In collaboration with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, Division of Child Protection, we have built a network of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and nurses who are dedicated to the mission of providing medical evaluations for children suspected of being abused or neglected. Services to this network of professionals include consultation, education, discussion and collaboration on the various topics and concerns surrounding child maltreatment. Our goals are to expand and improve medical evaluation and treatment services, and to increase prevention efforts. The group convenes 2 to 3 times per year through in-person and teleconference contacts.
If you are a healthcare professional and have an interest in joining the Illinois Medical Network, please contact the Pediatric Resource Center (877-262-6122) and leave your name, address and telephone number.
