Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Protecting children from abuse was the focus of a conference in Columbia.
Children's Trust of South Carolina wrapped up it's Prevention Conference late Friday afternoon. The two day event focused on preventing child abuse, neglect and injuries.
"It's a great way to get people to network and it's not just a coming together, but a sharing of ideas of what works in one area might not work in another," said Sue Williams, the CEO of Children's Trust. "We bring in international speakers and sometimes it's hard to people to have the time to travel, so when we bring them here, people in South Carolina get the benefit of having these great speakers to learn from."
This statewide conference is held once every two years.
