A retired pediatrician has been honored by Families Network of Western Connecticut. During their annual luncheon on Thursday the organization recognized Dr. Alvin Goldman. Executive Director Susan Giglio says Goldman was the partner of the group's founding member. She notes that Goldman has been a phenomenal supporter of their programing and volunteered for the organization for the past 18 years.
Funds raised at this luncheon will help Families Network to expand their abuse prevention and health services to families in the greater Danbury area and expand into early literacy and school readiness.
Families Network hosted a number of public awareness events and educational activities in the last several weeks for Child Abuse Prevention Month.
