Strengthening Community and Health Care Provider Resiliency to Adverse Childhood Experiences

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events in childhood that can have negative, lasting
effects on health and well-being that can be passed on to future generations.  These experiences range from physical,
emotional or sexual abuse to those concerning household instability, such as parental divorce, incarceration, substance abuse or mental illness, among others.  Panelists will discuss a guide for implementing best practices when addressing ACEs; tools to incorporate screening for ACEs, resilience and social determinants of health into primary care practice; approaches for assisting families; causes of staff burnout; and strategies for building a more resilient workforce.

Hosts:

  • Howard A. Zucker, MD, JD – Commissioner, New York State Department of Health
  • John M. Carrigg – President & CEO, UHS & UHS Hospitals

Presenters:

  • Nicole M. Brown, MD, MPH, MHS – Founder & Chief Health Officer, Strong Children Wellness
