ACES - from Bonnie's presentation

I have a whole flyer that I will send out, but the system won't let me attach a .pdf file to these newsletters, so here is the key information.

Research shows that having Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), causes unhealthy levels of stress, called toxic stress. These high levels of stress, which are frequent and prolonged, can dramatically change how the brain develops and increase the risk of health and social problems throughout a lifetime.
10 Types of Adverse Childhood Experiences studied

ABUSE

1 Physical
2 Psychological
3 Sexual
NEGLECT
4 Physical
5 Psychological
HOUSEHOLD DYSFUNCTION
6 Substance abuse
7 Parent with mental illness
8 Incarcerated parent
9 Divorce
10 Domestic violence
WE CAN PREVENT AND MITIGATE THE EFFECTS OF ACES RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE FOUNDATION OF HEALTHY BRAIN DEVELOPMENT AT ANY AGE
• In the absence of a caring relationship, trauma can disrupt healthy brain development
• Communities can promote healthy brain development through relationship building
• Promoting healthy brain development is essential to individual and community wellbeing
Positive experiences can buffer those bad experiences. Whenever we talk about ACEs, it is equally important to discuss
relational wealth – being connected in a healthy way to a social network. Research reinforces that positive interactions and
experiences for children and families foster healthy development. This can extend to the larger community, thus
emphasizing that one caring adult can make all the difference.

American Heart Association - Executive Leadership Breakfast

Please see below from Jordan Naliwajka, whom some of us have met when Patrick brought her to lunch.

I am with the American Heart Association and I wanted to share our upcoming Executive Leadership Breakfast with the Brookhaven Rotary Community, as this is a great leadership development opportunity. I have included the invitation and registration link below.

I hope you’ll join us for the 2nd Annual Executive Leadership Breakfast Series hosted by the American Heart Association. This year the event is being chaired by Shan Cooper, Executive Director, Atlanta Committee for Progress. She will sit down with Jeff Sprecher for a heart-to-heart as he shares insight and stories. Jeff is the Chairman and CEO of the Intercontinental Exchange, and Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange.
