ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES STUDY

ACES

 Keynote Speaker: Vincent Felitti, MD

Co-Author of the ACE Study

Come hear Dr. Felitti present the findings of the landmark Kaiser/CDC ACE 25 year study: 

  • Dramatic links were found between Adverse Childhood Experiences and risky behaviors, psychological issues, joblessness, divorce, serious illness and death in adults. 
  • People with 6 or more ACEs died nearly 20 years earlier than those without ACEs.
  • Almost 40% of the Kaiser sample reported two or more ACEs and 12.5% experienced four or more.

Dr. Vincent Felitti

An internationally known expert in preventative health, Dr. Felitti was the Chief of Kaiser Permanente’s revolutionary Department of Preventative Medicine. This department was the largest medical evaluation site in the world and an early adopter of reducing health care costs. Dr. Felitti joined with the CDC to study 17,000 middle class patients to document how ACEs affect lives and our societies.   

            

 

Please join us for breakfast and learn why the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) estimates that the lifetime costs associated with adverse experiences in childhood is $124 billion.
