Lauren Book, a young Miami woman who has publicly described her ordeal of sexual abuse by the family nanny during her childhood, has produced a series of books and fun interactive exercises for kindergarten-age kids intended to help them protect themselves, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Ms. Book is the daughter of well-known lobbyist Ron Book.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
