Michigan ACE Initiative July 2020 Impact Report Highlights Progress to Raise Awareness about ACEs


The Michigan ACE Initiative just released the July 2020 Impact Report.  The Impact Report highlights Michigan ACE's accomplishments since its 2017 launch, including: educating over 20,000 Michigan residents about ACEs and ACE science; bringing over 500 people together for a statewide ACE Conference; producing two videos highlighting the work of Michigan communities to address ACEs and build resilience; training 134 Master Trainers and over 400 Michigan ACE Community Champions to educate Michiganders about ACEs; and passing two concurrent resolutions in the state legislature declaring ACEs to be a critical health issue. 

The Impact Report also shares next steps for the work in Michigan, including a commitment to:

â€Ē Expand ACE awareness to accelerate research, educate the public and lawmakers, and ultimately reduce and prevent ACEs in Michigan 

â€Ē Provide training and technical assistance across sectors and populations to raise awareness; identify, understand, and respond to ACEs; and build resilience in individuals, organizations, and communities

â€Ē Pursue ACE-aware, trauma-informed policies in the public and private sectors
