Family Law Society UF’s Family Law Society, in conjunction with the Alachua County Child Abuse Prevention Task Force and North Florida Regional Medical Center, hosted its annual “Winds of Change” on April 13. The event was held to foster awareness of child abuse in the community. The Family Law Society and nearly 30 volunteers, including Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell, “planted” 1,904 pinwheels to represent each substantiated case of child abuse or neglect in Alachua County in 2007. The pinwheel display will remain on the front lawn of the hospital for the duration of April in recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
