How early adversity hurts children's development & health throughout their lives

Wednesday, May 22 | 6:30 to 8:45 PM
Crowfoot Public Library (NW quadrant) Crowfoot Public Library (NW quadrant)

Have you ever heard of ACEs? As in, "adverse childhood experiences"?

Two-thirds of us have had at least one ACE. But did you know that the more ACEs you have had, the more it can affect your physical health throughout your life? We're discovering that it's NOT just a childhood-health issue.

Join us for a pre-recorded TEDTalk selected by our volunteer team, followed by facilitated group conversations about how ACE trauma may affect you, and how screening can reveal important mechanisms and treatment options that are often hidden behind physical ailments.

We look forward to seeing you there! Click on the link to register for free on our Community Salon site.
