P.A.N.D.A.S – Preventing Abuse and Neglect Through Dental Awareness:  Anupama Rao Tate D.M.D, M.P.H and Dr Jennifer Cully D.M.D.

This program will focus on child abuse and neglect recognition and reporting, as well as early recognition and appropriate referrals for victims of intimate partner violence, elder and vulnerable adult abuse/neglect. And Human trafficking. Throughout the course the impact of bullying and control tactic will be discussed as it occurs across the spectrum of family violence topics. P.A.N.D.A., which stands for Prevent Abuse and Neglect through Dental Awareness, began in Missouri in 1992 to address the lack of child abuse reporting by dental professionals, even thought the majority of all physical abuse involves injuries to the head, neck, and mouth. Intimate partner violence awareness and elder abuse and neglect were added to the Mid-Atlantic P.A.N.D.A presentation in 2005 and then the most recent addition of human trafficking occurred in 2009.

Objectives will be to:

2. Educate individuals to become knowledgeable to recognize, report and refer
