Lawrence A. Aubin, Sr. Child Protection Center

In response to the critical need for assessment and treatment of potentially abused children, Hasbro Children's Hospital has instituted the Child Protection Program. The program provides services for children who may have been victims of sexual, physical or emotional abuse, neglect or factitious disorders.

Established in 1996 and directed by Carole Jenny, MD—an internationally recognized advocate for children and one of a limited number of child abuse experts in the country—the program provides outpatient, inpatient and emergency department consultations for suspected cases of physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect or medical child abuse.

The division is home to a nationally known fellowship in Child Abuse Pediatrics.  Please find more information about the fellowship here.
