The California Governor’s Office on Emergency Services is asking every physician, nurse, social worker and other healthcare providers to take this FREE one hour online course which clarifies questionable situations regarding what is reportable and how to proceed.

Over 1.5 million children in California suffer at least two instances of childhood abuse and neglect, according to a report by the nonprofit Children. We obtained a grant that expires at the end of September; so we’re encouraging all eligible practitioners to take this free 1.25 credit hour course online before the month is out.
