About the Summit
The Central Iowa ACEs 360 Coalition invites you to a day dedicated to taking action in response to Adverse Childhood Experiences to improve Iowans' health and well-being. The summit is a call to action to the findings shared in the latest Iowa ACEs report released July 2016. It will move beyond discussing what are ACEs to focus on how we can take informed action in response. Follow the discussion on social media under #ResilientIowa
The summit will feature the following sessions:
Director James Redford’s powerful documentary,
Resilience, examines the impact of trauma during childhood and innovative community-led
responses. The hour-long film moves beyond
the Paper Tigers film to give a call to action.
Theresa Barila, co-founder of the Children’s Resilience Initiative in Walla Walla, Washington, will talk about her community's effort to build capacity within various partner agencies to have
a unified approach to responding to ACEs.
Interactive sessions and discussions will give you an opportunity to learn from emerging response strategies in Iowa and to develop your response to ACEs in your personal and professional life.
