How many ACE’s (Adverse Childhood Experiences) do you have? How many ACE’s does your child have?
Research shows that a third of our population have more than three ACE’s, enough to have permanently injured their brain functioning and put them at higher risk for adult health issues from diabetes, to heart attack, to suicide.
Knowing your ACE score is also shown to have a positive effect on your life and experiences.
The ACE Study is ongoing collaborative research between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, GA, and Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, CA. The Co-principal Investigators of The Study are Robert F. Anda, MD, MS, with the CDC; and Vincent J. Felitti, MD, with Kaiser Permanente. Over 17,000 Kaiser patients participating in routine health screening volunteered to participate in The Study. Data resulting from their participation continues to be analyzed; it reveals staggering proof of the health, social, and economic risks that result from childhood trauma.
