"Childhood Matters: Connecting Adverse Childhood Experiences and Adult Health"WHEN: Wednesday, April 15, 2009 from 7:15 – 9:15 PM
WHERE: Kaufman-Duckworth Hall 224, Old Dominion University Campus
It is often said that children are resilient, that they bounce back from adverse experiences unaffected. It is also commonly thought that difficult circumstances faced in childhood are left in the past when we become adults. Research findings from the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACE) show that nothing could be further from the truth. In his presentation Dr. Robert Anda, one of the lead investigators in this research, will discuss how childhood experiences are have major impacts on poor quality of life, illness and even death in adults.
Presentation is free and open to the Public. For more information call Dr. Lucien Lombardo 757-683-3800 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
