#SaludTues Tweetchat “Understanding ACEs and Toxic Stress”
February 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
#SaludTues Tweetchat hosted by @SaludAmerica
Our bodies are wired for survival, thanks to our biological stress system. However, without buffering protections, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), such as neglect and abuse, can lead to a toxic stress response. Fortunately, we know toxic stress is a health condition that is amenable to treatment.
To help Californians better understand ACEs and toxic stress, we invite our ACEs Aware community to join us on Twitter on February 9 and use #SaludTues to Tweet about the lifelong consequences of ACEs and toxic stress and prevention strategies.
Use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation between Salud America!, ACEs Connection, Campaign for Trauma Informed Policy and Practice, Center for Care Innovations and ACEs Aware to learn the latest on trauma-informed care.
