The impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on the developing nervous system has gained much attention of late, particularly related to adult health outcomes.  The underlying neural development related to ACEs will be explored, along with developmental models that support healing and maturation.  Such an approach both requires and benefits community, strengthening the likelihood of an interconnected, supportive environment for the future.  

INsights & INnovations is a monthly webinar series designed for public health practitioners. Our current series is exploring ways we can address public health challenges through a health equity lens. Webinars are the last Friday of every month at 12:00 pm eastern time.
