Adele Polson and Doreen De Leonardis have been invited to attend the dinner honoring National Digital Car Seat Check Form “Champions,” people and organizations, like Westat, that have helped develop and promote the form.

Ms. Polson and Dr. De Leonardis are certified child passenger safety technicians (CPSTs) who routinely volunteer at checkpoints in Montgomery County, Maryland. They also have conducted important research into child safety issues relating to restraint use fit, child seat use across the U.S., and caregiver awareness and use of child safety seat checkpoints.
