As medical director of UNM’s Child Abuse Response Team (CART), Leslie Strickler, D.O., is one of just a handful of physicians in New Mexico with expertise in diagnosing and treating child abuse. The New Mexico Legislature will consider a proposal during its 2015 session to build upon Strickler's work by creating a new Child Maltreatment Center at UNM.
