2016 Conference on Adverse Childhood Experiences: Awareness to Action
October 19 - 21, 2016
October 20, 2016
Center for Youth Wellness is hosting the second biannual Conference on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). This year’s theme, “Awareness to Action,” calls together thought-leaders and advocates from the education, early childhood, health, juvenile justice and child welfare sectors to build on our collective awareness efforts to implement policies and practices that benefit the whole child. Our goal is to strengthen cross-sector collaboration as we work together to build state and national systems that help children who have faced early adversity.
Simultaneously, Center for Youth Wellness is launching the first half day Pediatric Symposium for pediatricians, nurses and other medical staff working on or interested in ACE screening and referrals within pediatric medical settings.
