Adverse childhood experiences (aces)
Chaired by Dr. Adam Schickedanz, MD, FAAP who is a faculty researcher examining the impacts of poverty and ACEs on children’s health, this committee has taken off in the last few month s educating our chapter members on ACEs and exploring how the Governor’s desire to screen for ACEs can be implemented in our clinics. This committee will also attempt to align with the work of our Surgeon General, Dr. Nadine Burke-Harris in this area. Consider joining this committee if you work in a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) or with vulnerable populations such as children in the foster care system or who have been abused or neglected or if this issue is important to you.
