Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE): Connecting a Developmental Lens to the Health of Our Society
Feb 25, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Ryther and the Comprehensive Health Education Foundation are proud to present Dr. Robert Anda, one of the two co-founders of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Adverse Childhood Experience Study.
In the early 1990’s, Dr. Anda began a collaboration with Dr. Vincent Felitti at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego to investigate child abuse as an underlying cause of medical, social, and public health problems. This effort led to a large-scale study funded by the CDC to track the effects of childhood trauma on health through life, called the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACE Study). Dr. Anda played a principal role in the design of the study, and serves as its co-principal investigator.
Response Panel will follow Dr. Anda’s presentation. The panel will be facilitated by Laura Porter, Senior Director, ACEs Learning Institute at the Community Health Education Foundation.
This free event will provide the community an opportunity to discuss with Dr. Anda the implications from the ACE study to pediatric health care, behavioral health, and family support.
