PMRG is pleased to report that the bravery of falsely accused parents, victimized children, as well as experts have assisted the Controller’s Office of Lehigh County in a comprehensive investigation into the abusive practices of Debra Esernio-Jenssen MD at Lehigh Valley Hospital.

The Controller's investigative report will be available on the county website on Tuesday 8/22/23 directly after a Press conference that will be held at 10am at the Lehigh County Government Center 17 South 7th Street in Allentown. All are invited to attend and we are hoping for a big turnout.

The following evening, Wednesday, 8/23/23 the Controller will speak about the investigative findings before the Board of Lehigh County Commissioners. The meeting is scheduled for 7:30pm and will be held at the Government Center. Following the presentation, affected parents, children, extended family, friends, and community members will have an opportunity to address the Board with their personal experiences within the allotted time (3 minutes per speaker).

We are requesting support in the form of attending the Press Conference and, perhaps even more important, the Board meeting. We also welcome all to speak in support of parents, personal experiences, or concerns for the community about Dr. Jenssen’s conduct.

PMRG, along with the parents, express sincere gratitude to the Lehigh County Controller’s Office for listening to the community, hearing concerns, investigating the facts, and providing recommendations that will make a difference in our community. The community, parents, and professionals will need to show unrelenting support to ensure the appropriate entities ACT to keep Lehigh Valley families safe.
