Florida Pediatricians Thank Sen. Detert

sendetertfcaapplaqueThis week, State Senator Nancy Detert visited Sarasota Memorial to receive a special plaque from the Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, recognizing her efforts to pass the “expert witness” law in criminal child abuse cases. The FCAAP honored Senator Detert as “a valiant advocate for Florida’s children, evident from her sponsorship of this legislation and the highly publicized Protection of Vulnerable Persons bill.” The state increased penalties for those who suspect abuse but do not report it. Local pediatrician Jerry Isaac, MD, left, presented the honor to Sen. Detert.
