Research and training around adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) have gained widespread attention and fueled numerous initiatives over the past two decades. In the May session of Hot Topics, leaders from Washington’s Comprehensive Health Education Foundation explain efforts to coordinate the growing number of ways people are addressing ACEs so that this work can have a collective impact.

In this one-hour webinar, Melanie Gillespie, MBA, and Laura Porter explain why ACEs are powerful drivers of health. They will reveal new data about the proven practices for building resilience against ACEs. Gillespie and Porter will also share useful resources for taking action with local decision-makers and will discuss the ACEs Learning Institute, a new initiative to provide support for those who are addressing ACEs in their communities.

Register today to learn new information about the impact of ACEs in our communities and the resources to address them.
