An Important Resource Released by the CDC!
The Vital Signs series from the CDC, launched in 2010, addresses a single, important public health topic each month. This month’s edition presents CDC’s first ever comprehensive estimates of the potential to improve Americans’ health by preventing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). ACEs and their harms are preventable using the best available evidence to create safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments for all children and families. APSAC is proud to share the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) article “Estimated Proportion of Adult Health Problems Attributable to Adverse Childhood Experiences and Implications for Prevention — 25 states, 2015–2017”. This report underscores the importance of all our work to reduce the harms of child maltreatment. We invite you to explore and share this valuable resource from the CDC.
