Be part of an exciting day of professional development and networking with experts and colleagues from across the state. We are thrilled to be awarding our very first, MACA "One with Courage" award to Aaron Fisher for coming forward as Victim #1 in the Sandusky case. He, along with his mother, Dawn Daniels, and his therapist, Mike Gillum penned, “Silent No More - Victim 1's Fight for Justice Against Jerry Sandusky” and we are so excited to welcome all three of them to our conference. In addition to their inspiring message, we are offering workshops relevant for all child abuse professionals, particularly those who are part of multidisciplinary investigation teams, including health and mental health providers.
