~Dr. Ron Barr
No child, at any age, should ever be shaken.
Every hour, one child in Arizona is abused or neglected. 24 hours a day.
Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) is a severe form of child maltreatment. One third of young children who are shaken violently will die. Shaken Baby Syndrome is 100% preventable!
Never Shake a Baby Arizona (NSBAz) is an evidence-based program that is aimed at providing parents information and skills to prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome. Our goal is to eliminate Shaken Baby Syndrome. To achieve this goal, NSBAz is working to be available throughout the state to all parents who have just given birth.
