On August 16, 2017, from 2 to 3:15 p.m. ET, OJJDP, in collaboration with the National Criminal Justice Training Center, will present "Which Comes First: the Child Forensic Interview or the Medical-Forensic Exam?" This webinar will address the child forensic interview and the medical evaluation portions of the National Children's Alliance's new "Standards for Accredited Members."
