Join us for the third Town Hall on Adverse Childhood Experiences hosted by Senator Mike McGuire and First 5 Humboldt on November 21 at 6:00 pm at the Sequoia Conference Center.
Our featured guest is Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, California’s Surgeon General and a pediatrician and leader on the impacts of child abuse, neglect and trauma (also known as ACES – Adverse Childhood Experiences). We're following up on an effort started three years ago to address the impact of ACEs on Humboldt County's kids.
Unfortunately, our region has had some of the highest numbers for childhood abuse, neglect and trauma in California – but we've made great progress in the last three years and we’re looking forward to sharing the good news with you next week.
You won't want to miss this opportunity to connect with the Surgeon General and learn how we can all support children and families!
