Tenth International Conference on Shaken Baby Syndrome/Abusive Head Trauma was held on October 5-7, 2008 in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia
This three day conference was a great success. The largest conference in 10 years brought 754 people from all around the world.
Professionals from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and North America came together to learn, network, and educate. Once again we feel the conference was instrumental in connecting professionals and families in their goal to eradicate shaken baby syndrome/abusive head trauma.
We appreciate the support and involvement of over 100 presenters who came and shared their expertise with the audience. With 90 sessions for legal, medical, prevention, and family tracks, participants were able to receive education in their respected area of study.
Our opening Keynote Speaker was Sir Roy Meadow. Sir Meadow gave a heartfelt and captivating presentation on Preserving Reason in the Debate About Inflicted Injuries.
We at the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome would like to restate our appreciation to Sir Meadow for traveling from the United Kingdom and sharing his incredible story to a packed ballroom. We were also very fortunate to have Dr. Norman Guthkelch, the first person to publish the concept of SBS, travel from across the country and set the record straight about the beginning of SBS/AHT.
His presence at the conference really topped things off and made for an incredible and valuable learning experience.
