Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) such as abuse, neglect, and witnessing household dysfunction are common throughout the United States and are occurring in our own communities. ACEs impose immediate health risks to children but also are associated with poor health outcomes in adulthood including higher rates of cancer, heart disease, chronic lung disease, obesity, depression and substance use. The goal of this project was to contribute to prevention strategies for ACEs. This was accomplished by using flyers to raise awareness and educate the community on the prevalence and outcomes of ACEs, and by using QR codes to make parenting resources easily accessible.
