    Shaken Baby Task Force Educating Teens

    For twenty years, Jean Armstrong with theMethodist Jennie Edmundson Family Resource Center and Shaken Baby Task Force has spoken to area high schools and middle schools to educate them about Shaken Baby Syndrome. 

    Armstrong stands in front the class and demonstrates with an egg the irreparable damage done to the brain when someone shakes a newborn.

    "It's a serious form of child abuse, it's 100% preventable."

    She says nearly 25% of babies with Shaken Baby Syndrome die and the rest often have lifelong brain damage.
