Learn about the research and clinical application of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study.
“This study is one of the largest investigations ever conducted to assess associations between childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being. The study is a collaboration between the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) and Kaiser Permanente’s Health Appraisal Clinic in San Diego.” —Center for Youth Wellness
My guests were
Janine Greer, MA., Health Educator at the Center For Youth Wellness in San Francisco and Dr. Zea Malawa, Pediatrician at the Bayview Child Health Center in San Francisco.

“More than 17,000 Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) members undergoing a comprehensive physical examination chose to provide detailed information about their childhood experience of abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction. To date, more than 50 scientific articles have been published and more than100 conference and workshop presentations have been made.” —Center for Disease Control

“This community of practice uses trauma-informed, resilience-building practices to prevent Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and to change systems to stop traumatizing already traumatized people.”
