In 2017, California became the first state in the country to pass a law supporting universal screening for adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in the 5.3 million children in the state’s Medicaid program. As clinicians around California await the state’s announcement of what this new policy will entail, many are wondering what it takes to integrate ACEs science in a pediatric practice.
Meet Drs. Deirdre Bernard-Pearl, R.J. Gillespie and Ariane Marie-Mitchel. Together they have more than 15 years experience in how to transform an entire clinic or medical residency program for screening families for ACEs and offering them support.
In this ACEs Connection webinar, co-sponsored by the California Campaign to Counter Childhood Adversity (4CA), you’ll learn:
How these practitioners changed their clinics;
What lessons they learned;
What they wish they had done differently;
What the results of the transition are;
What they’re working on now.
