This year's program features Dr. Harold Ivan Smith, nationally known grief specialist, counselor, educator, author and speaker. Also included in the sympo- sium will be representatives of or- ganirations from around Delmar- va that provide help and guidance to those experiencing difficulties and stress related to grief, sick- ness, disease, addictions, family or relationship struggles. The gathering of these organi- rations in one place will be a pow- erful source of information and contact for those attending. The two-day event begins with Dentist Continued from page 43 en children were at the party when police were called to the high-rise apartment. There, they found the baby with a crushed skull and numerous bite marks. Because of the size of the marks, an odontologist was able to immediately eliminate all of the adults as suspects. Then, the odontologist narrowed the list fur- ther by determining that since no teeth were missing, the child was not younger than 2 nor yet 6 years old. Police ultimately deduced the killer was a 4-year-old guest at the christening party. .... As technology has developed, so too have human resources, said Levine. For example, now many hospitals have Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) teams that perform medical examina- tions on those who have been as- saulted.

'q'hey understand the needs of the justice system. From the stand- point of the victim, it's much less traumatic than if the exam is per- formed by an officer, even though some states have female officers who are trained to do it.

Solving crimes, he explained, is not simple and requires many facets: technology, forensic sci- ence and skilled investigators. "It's really a marriage. It's not one thing." 'q'he aging of America and the resulting increased demands for and on family caregivers is creat- ing a social and economic tidal wave impacting tens of millions of Americans and their compa- nies," said keynote presenter Ron Moore, creator of American Busi- ness Cares, a national initiative to educate employers about the ef- fect of an aging popu!ation and workforce.
