are getting made against parents, and of how these charges are being resolved. Unfortunately, no centralized records are kept of these charges.
To get a better count of how often these charges are getting made, we are asking for your help. If charges of medical child abuse have been made against you or a member of your family, can you please let us know by filling out this survey? http://ow.ly/KPYp9

A researcher at University of North Carolina, Prof. Maxine Eichner, working with UMDF, is writing about the rising numbers of medical child abuse charges being leveled at parents of children with genuine medical issues like mitochondrial disease. That researcher is trying to get a rough count of how often such charges are getting made against parents, and of how these charges are being resolved. Unfortunately, no centralized records are kept of these charges.
