Join the Public Health Institute's Population Health Innovation Lab (PHIL) and its division Northern ACEs Collaborative (NAC) to welcome California's first Surgeon General, Dr. Nadine Burke Harris as a keynote, along with other notable speakers at the first ever North State Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs) Summit.
 
Many Northern California Counties are disproportionately affected by high Adverse Child Experience (ACE) scores relative to other regions in California. Domestic violence is an indicator in the ACE spectrum along with other Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) which play a critical role in healthy families.
 
The Population Health Innovation Lab (PHIL), supports Northern ACEs Collaborative (NAC) and act as the backbone, to support and enhance current activities in the six pilot target counties of: Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Shasta, Tehama and Trinity. The focus is on identifying and addressing opportunities for policy and systems change that mitigate issues of trauma and domestic violence.
 
SUMMIT OBJECTIVES:
 
  • Raise awareness of the disproportionate high rates of Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) scores in the North State of California
  • Increase participant understanding of the effects of ACEs on individuals and communities leading to a more trauma informed region
  • Provide a platform for relationship building through dialogue and information sharing
  • Provide both short-term and long-term solutions to addressing ACEs and the linkages to the Social Determinants of Health through presentations and breakout sessions led by experts throughout the day
