Children's Hospital of Wisconsin physicians among first to receive Child Abuse Pediatrics certification
Lynn Sheets, MD, medical director of the Child Protection Center at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, and Judy Guinn, MD, a pediatrician at the Child Protection Center, have completed board certification in Child Abuse Pediatrics. Dr. Sheets also is an associate professor of Pediatrics (Child Protection) at The Medical College of Wisconsin and a member of Children's Specialty Group.
