ACEs, Race, and Health Equity: Understanding and Addressing the Role of Race and Racism in ACEs Exposure and Healing

We know that ACEs, and access to trauma informed care, resilience, and resilient communities, can impact long term health outcomes. From the field of public health, we recognize that racism plays a role in shaping trends and patterns of health outcomes. This session will explore racism as trauma and identify intersections between the health impacts of ACEs and racial/ethnic health disparities. Dr. Flojaune G. Cofer, Director of State Policy & Research at Public Health Advocates (Sacramento), and Ben Duncan, Chief Diversity and Equity Officer for Multnomah County (Oregon), will weave together findings from research and practice to raise participants' awareness of these intersecting issues, as well as discuss practice and policy interventions that can help decrease community-level rates of reported ACEs.
