Hi there -- I'm posting here on Ped community at the suggestion of a colleague who says this may be best way to find an adult primary care doc at Kaiser.
I'm a passionate advocate for ACEs awareness, and a high-ACE-score kid who writes about childhood trauma. I'm also a Kaiser member in the Oakland/Richmond area, and I'm looking for a primary care doc who REALLY knows his/her stuff about emerging ACEs science. Happily, I am healthy today, but the health problems I've had in the past have been "ACE-y". Likewise, my work at resilience has led to wonderful health victories, yet these happen completely outside my PCP's awareness. I'd like to have a PCP who "gets it" and is interested -- in the vulnerabilities and the victories -- and who might possibly share with me new research, or even allow me to participate in studies that would advance our understanding of ACEs and health.
I've observed that most KP docs are provided with basic education about ACEs, but not always at a level that matches what I'm seeking. I hoped the community might be able to point me toward the right person.
