The landmark Kaiser ACE Study gave the public health field insight into how powerfully our experiences in childhood can influence our health as adults. But what exactly do we know about adverse childhood experiences, and what does that information mean for public health practitioners? Most importantly, how can we use what we know about ACEs to minimize their negative effects and ideally, prevent them from occurring in the first place?
The ACEs Snapshot will help to answer those questions. Serving as a doorway to CDC’s latest work and research into the topic of ACEs, Snapshot is designed to be approachable, informative, and something you can share to help stakeholders and partners understand ACEs.
As our knowledge of ACEs continues to expand, we will continue updating Snapshot so you will always know where to go to find the latest ACEs information.
