Bringing together child abuse professionals and community leaders from across the state to celebrate 20 years of multidisciplinary team response to child abuse in Massachusetts, the event recognized several key leaders who have helped us reach significant milestones during the last two decades in the development of multidisciplinary teams (SAIN Teams) and Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs), including A. Joseph DeNucci, Ed Bailey, MD, Former DA & AG Scott Harshbarger, DSS Director of Field Support Beryl Domingo, Berkshire County CAC Team, and Senator Cheryl Jacques. It was also the formal inauguration of our Massachusetts State Chapter, the latest development in this 20-year history. There was also an opportunity to view program exhibits and breakfast was provided.
