5th Annual Arizona ACEs Summit, Tuesday, December 11th, 2018


5th Annual Arizona ACEs Summit:  Becoming a Trauma Informed State - Overcoming Adverse Childhood Experiences to Create a Healthier Arizona 

"Adverse childhood experiences can negatively impact a child's life well into adulthood - through identification and assessment, we can develop intervention strategies - creating happier communities for current and future generations of Arizonans. These efforts will move us closer to becoming a trauma-informed state, and help solidify Arizona as the number one state to live, work, play, recreate, retire, visit, do business, and get an education." -Governor Doug Ducey

The event is at capacity, however the morning portion from 9:00am – 12:30pm, (MST) will be livestreamed.  This will include addresses by First Lady Angela Ducey, Governor Doug Ducey, and Dr. Bruce Perry, as well as the plenary panel “Working with Vulnerable Populations in a Trauma-Informed Way”.  The event program and new report "From ACEs to Action: Working Together to Educate, Engage and Advocate for Positive Change" are attached.
