Join the University of Maryland Medical System and the University of Maryland, Baltimore on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 from 9 am to 4 pm for a FREE community conversation about the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). ACEs are stressful or traumatic events that strongly impact health outcomes throughout a person’s life. Join us for an important discussion that includes afternoon breakout sessions for families, clinicians and providers, law enforcement, educators, faith leaders and human resource specialists (UMB Campus Center only). This event is open to the public and provides an opportunity to hear from and talk to health care professionals and community leaders about adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), resilience and the road to recovery. Join us for FREE discussions, breakfast, lunch and resources.
Trauma survivor and internationally recognized trauma informed care expert Tonier Cain-Muldrow will be on hand to share lessons learned after living on the streets for more than 20 years. Her experience illustrates the impact that untreated trauma has on individuals and society at-large, including mental health problems, addiction, homelessness and incarceration. She began her journey to become a survivor and began to live with more hope than fear when someone finally took the time to ask, “What happened to you?” instead of, “What’s wrong with you?”
