KickFire Marketing CEO to moderate workshops at International Conference on Shaken Baby Syndrome

The International Conference on Shaken Baby Syndrome/Abusive Head Trauma will be held in Montreal, Quebec, Sept. 25-27, 2016.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the conference, sponsored by the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome (NCSBS), and will include presentations from leading medical, legal and prevention professionals from some of the most notable universities, organizations and institutions in the world. According to the organization’s website, the NCSBS “is committed to prevent shaken baby syndrome and promote the well-being of infants generally through the development and implementation of programs, policy and research; and to support and educate families, caregivers and professionals.”

KickFire Marketing CEO Janelle Page Misbach was appointed to the governing board of the NCSBS earlier this year and is honored to take an active role in this year’s conference.

“This is going to be an incredible conference! We have some of the brightest minds in the field presenting and attending,” said Misbach. “I’m looking forward to strategizing with fellow NCSBS board members, as well as serving as a moderator for the various conference workshops. I’m also excited to see the city and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage.” 

In addition to attending a quarterly board meeting the day before the conference begins, Misbach will also moderate a number of workshops, including “Correlates of Risk for Maternal Infant Abuse and Abusive Head Trauma Prevention;” “Safe Baby Plus: Integration of Developmental Screening into a Preventative Program;” “What Death Can Teach Us: Individual Case Narratives as a Path toward Improved Prevention of Fatal Abusive Head Trauma;” and “A Bomb Goes off in the Family: How to Pick Up the Pieces.”

Ryan Steinbeigle, executive director of the NCSBS, said this year’s conference will include keynote addresses from Ranny Cooper, public affairs president at Weber Shandwick and former chief of staff for Ted Kennedy, and will also, for the first time, include an address from a perpetrator who shook her friend’s baby. The NCSBS will also unveil a new logo before the opening address.  
 
“The National Center is thrilled to be celebrating 20 years of providing training and education on Shaken Baby Syndrome/Abusive Head Trauma,” said Steinbeigle. “This milestone conference is an important opportunity for us to renew our commitment to serving the professionals who work with these difficult cases each year and the families who have been devastated by this tragic form of abuse.”
