Child and Parent Empowerment (CAPE)

Advisor: Renee Boynton-Jarrett MD, ScD (


The mission of CAPE is to address the cycle of child abuse that occurs from generation to generation by promoting the education and engagement of future health care providers as advocates in empowering the children and parents of the communities they serve. CAPE provides education on child abuse through seminars, which cover a wide range of issues pertaining to child abuse, taught by experts at BMC. CAPE will also host fundraisers to provide backpacks with trauma-coping supplies for children, and will provide service opportunities in the community.
