The Medical Evaluation Response Initiative Team, also known as MERIT, has a mission to provide all children suspected of physical or sexual abuse with timely expert medical evaluations and treatment. The Children’s Advocacy Center of DeKalb County announces that MERIT and their team of experts including, Dr. Ray Davis, Board Certified in Child Abuse Evaluations, are now able to conduct medical evaluations at the DeKalb County Health Department.
This will be a tremendous help to the families they assist who, until now, would have to find transportation to Rockford to get these much needed expert evaluations. The public is invited to come celebrate this step toward ending child abuse in DeKalb County this Friday, January 20th, 2017 at 3:30 pm at the DeKalb County Health Department, 2550 N. Annie Glidden Road in DeKalb. Please call 815-758-8616 with any questions.
