Pediatrics for the 21st Century (Peds 21) and 2015 Annual AAP Conference

Washington Convention Center

Pediatrics for the 21st Century (Peds 21)

Friday, October 23, 2015 
11:30 am – 5:30 pm



While we hope to protect children and adolescents from any type of traumatic event and toxic stress, many will still have some type of adverse experience.  The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study demonstrates that the more adverse experiences a child has such as child maltreatment, exposure to interpersonal violence or parental drug use, the greater the likelihood the child will have physical and mental health issues that can last into adulthood, possibly resulting in premature death.  However, if identified and addressed early, the biological impact of toxic stress can be minimized.  In this session, pediatricians will learn how to identify and address toxic stress in the lives of their patients and families and access resources in order to promote resilience, giving children and adolescents an opportunity to live a healthy life.
