Radio Smart Talk for Tuesday, November 13:
The Jerry Sandusky case raised awareness of child abuse and also made society realize that we have to be more vigilant when it comes to protecting kids. In the year since the former Penn State assistant football coach was arrested and eventually convicted of sexually assaulting and molesting at least ten boys, a spotlight has been focused on child abuse.
Penn State established the Penn State Hershey Center for the Protection of Children to improve detection, protection, and treatment in child maltreatment cases.
The Center's director, Dr. Benjamin Levi, will appear on Tuesday's Radio Smart Talk.
