“Resilience” reveals how toxic stress from abuse and neglect can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.

Come join us and learn how Adverse Childhood Experiences can affect outcomes in education, health and success. Share thoughts and questions during our moderated community discussion with special guests from Next Success and the Ridgefield School District.

Special Guests: Nathan Abbott, Alison Dahl, Tiffany Quast, Teresa Vance and Christine Poppert
