Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are incidents that harm social, cognitive and emotional functioning and dramatically upset the safe, nurturing environments children need to thrive. Landmark research from the CDC and Kaiser Permanente has shown that ACEs can negatively impact the health and behavioral outcomes as an adult. The purpose of the series is to introduce participants to the ACE Study, facilitate discussions how study can inform participants work and communities, and provide tools and resources to for participants. This mission of our work is to prevent and mitigate the impact of toxic trauma on lifelong health. To learn more, please visit the Iowa ACEs website

Join us for the next Central Iowa ACEs 360 Community Learning Circle! The community learning circle will provide an opportunity for professionals and community members who are responding to childhood trauma in the Central Iowa region to network and stay on the cutting edge of the ACEs movement.
