Child abuse is a serious problem, both within the U.S. and around the world. In 2012, Child Protective Services agencies estimated that approximately 9 out of 1000 children in the U.S. were victims of child maltreatment and this was felt to underestimate the true scope of the problem. A recent study by the CDC estimated that one in four children experience some form of maltreatment in their lifetimes. Today we’re joined by Dr. Arne Graff, a family physician and Division Chair of Child Abuse and Pediatrics, practicing at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.
