HPIO brief explores the health impact of adverse childhood experiences
COVID pandemic leads to drop in preventive care

HPIO to host online forum on adverse childhood experiences

HPIO is hosting an online forum Sept. 29 titled “Improving child health and wellbeing: Creating opportunities for all Ohio children to thrive.”

As the 2019 Health Value Dashboard illustrates, too many Ohioans face obstacles to health, which are often rooted in childhood conditions and experiences. This forum will discuss the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on Ohioans including recent effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Attendees will learn about the biological impact of ACEs and trauma; best practices for screening, treatment and prevention; and considerations for Ohio's response to ACEs in the midst of the pandemic. For more information, or to register, visit the event page on HPIO’s website.
