Our goal is to use a multidisciplinary approach to investigate the causes of death of children from birth to 17 years of age to gain a better understanding of the circumstances surrounding each death. Recognizing child death risk factors will enable better use of existing resources and the creation of new practices to protect our children. -Susan Luberoff, M.D., SCFAC Chairperson
