Adults who have experienced childhood trauma have higher risks of depression, obesity, heart disease, and earlier death. However, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) don't have to predict the fate of adults. When we recognize and begin to help adults confront these negative events, they can become healthier and live longer. Participate in JCN's LIVE online Journal Club on November 4 based on the article "Recognizing the Trauma of Adverse Childhood Experiences." Earn 1.5 NCPD hours. Free to NCF members, or register here/pay a fee to attend or view later. ​
