Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are serious childhood traumas that result in toxic stress that can harm a child’s brain. Frequent or prolonged exposure to ACEs can damage the developing brain of a child and affect overall health.

The round table discussion will focus on how exposure to childhood ACEs can increase the risk of the following health
priorities:  smoking, illicit drug use and mental health.
