    This presentation by Dr. Kristen Votava includes information about the large public health study called the Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs) study. The ACEs study created a breakthrough in understanding how childhood experience affects well-being across the life-course. The presentation will view ACEs understanding through the discussion of the “NEAR” sciences of Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACEs, and Resilience, including in-depth information about 1) The neuro-biological effects of adversity on development, 2) The impacts of childhood adversity and trauma on population health, and 3) Resilience – what we can all do to improve health and well-being in early childhood education environments.
