It explores the science of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), now understood to be one of the leading causes of later-in-life disease and adversity, including heart ailments, cancer, substance abuse and depression.
This film and the panel discussion that will follow seek to further the discussion about how we can help Door County’s children by breaking the cycles of disease and adversity.
