MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 10, 2020 11:12 AM
From: Representative Thomas P. Murt
To: All House members
Subject: Shaken Baby Syndrome Awareness Week: April 13 - 19, 2020
 
I will soon introduce a resolution recognizing the week of April 13 - 19, 2020 as “Shaken Baby Syndrome Awareness Week” in Pennsylvania.

In the United States, approximately 1,300 infants and young children are diagnosed with shaken baby syndrome every year, with medical experts believing that thousands of additional cases are misdiagnosed or undetected. Approximately one out of four victims die as a result of direct brain injuries. In 2006, Pennsylvania became the first state to provide hospital-based education in 100% of all birthing and children’s hospitals.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this important resolution to bring awareness to this entirely preventable injury.



Introduced as HR926
