In communities across the nation, toxic stress caused by Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACEs, is profoundly impacting the health and development of generations of children. The impact of ACEs is the single largest public health crisis facing our nation, affecting people from all background, regardless of race, ethnicity, income, education, or geography. Dr. Nadine Burke Harris will address how ACEs and toxic stress affect a child’s health and early development and how we all have a collective responsibility to become a part of the solution.
