About the event

Special Program: Speaker Dr. Donna Chacko presents "Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs): What You Need to Know"

Dr. Chacko observed the late effects of ACE’s in her patients when she worked in Washington, D.C.—even before she knew what ACEs were. She will describe the landmark research that defined ACEs and their powerful impact on adult physical, mental, and behavioral health. Equally important, she will review current efforts to prevent ACEs, reduce their effects, and heal from the damage they create-- introducing the concepts of trauma awareness and resilience. For those who are experiencing or have experienced the effects of something that happened in their childhood or know someone who does, this presentation may be just the message that is needed to provide an avenue to health of mind, body, and spirit.
