Hanna Boys Center, in collaboration with our local community partners, will present an engaging and informative seminar with renowned guest speaker Dr. Robert Anda, Co-Principal Investigator of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study [ACE].

Dr. Anda will present "The ACE Study & The Progressive Nature of Adverse Childhood Experiences." 

In the early 1990’s, Dr. Anda began a collaboration with Dr. Vincent Felitti at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego to investigate child abuse as an underlying cause of medical, social, and public health problems. This effort lead to a large-scale study funded by the CDC to track the effects of childhood trauma on health throughout the lifespan. They called it the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACE Study). Dr. Anda played a principal role in the design of the study, and serves as its co-principal investigator.

Data collected from more than 17,000 patients clearly showed that adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), were common; that they had a profound negative effect on health and well-being; and were a prime determinant of the past, current and future health behaviors, social problems, disease incidence, and early death in the study population. These findings have resulted in more than 70 publications in major medical and public health journals. The ideas from this work are now influencing the design of similar research around the world.

Findings from the ACE Study have been presented at Congressional Briefings and numerous conferences around the world.  The ACE Study is being replicated in numerous countries by the World Health Organization (WHO), and is in use to assess the childhood origins of health and social problems in more than 18 U.S. states.

An overview of the Study, the concepts and the latest implications for change in systems at the community level will be presented.

This seminar is aimed at professionals and community members who want to explore how extreme stressors impact youth development, adult health and public health.
