On April 3, Sens. Cassidy and Baldwin and Reps. Schrier and Stivers (R-OH-15) introduced the "Early Detection to Stop Infant Abuse and Prevent Fatalities Act." This bill creates a demonstration program aimed at developing and expanding best practices to assist medical professionals in identifying and responding to injuries indicative of potential abuse in infants. CHA endorsed the bill and sent a letter of support to the champions.
