Devereux Team Shines at FCC Conference

(Devereux Florida)

Revealing the MagicDevereux Florida played a key role in this year’s conference of the Florida Coalition for Children (FCC), a statewide advocacy group dedicated to helping Florida's abused and neglected children. In addition to serving on the host committee and sponsoring the 60th anniversary of the annual event which was held Aug. 7 in Orlando Devereux representatives helped facilitate an expert panel discussion. Devereux Florida Executive Director Steven Murphy served as moderator and helped lead a productive discussion on the troubling subject of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. The expert panel addressed the topic as it relates to children and teens in Florida’s foster care system, discussing ideas for preventing the problem among these at-risk young people. More than 150 attendees came to hear the panel, which included psychiatrist Dr. Yolanda Graham of Devereux Georgia, DCF statewide human trafficking coordinator Tyson Elliott and Andry Sweet, vice president of operations for the Children’s Home Society of Florida. In addition, Devereux Florida’s Dr. James Ferro hosted a clinical presentation about treating individuals with brain injuries. Click here for more information about FCC.
