Forensic Assessment Network Center (FACN)

The Forensic Assessment Center Network provides expert consultation and education to Texas child protection workers concerning suspected cases of child abuse and neglect. The FACN mission is to correct the disparities in Texas in the availability of quality medical assessments for suspected child abuse and neglect victims, and to improve the outcomes for all Texas child abuse victims. The FACN network includes child abuse pediatricians from UTHSC-Houston, UTHSC-San Antonio, UT-Southwestern, UT-Medical Branch, Texas Tech University, and UT-Austin Dell Medical School.
