National Conference Spotlight: ACEs in the Urban Environment.

In the National Conference spotlight on Monday, May 19:

Dr. Roy Wade will present his innovative research on adverse childhood experiences which sought to reconcile the different ways that ACEs are recognized and manifested in urban environments. Dr. Wade will present the findings from his study, entitled "the Philadelphia Urban ACE Study," and will discuss the implications that his results have for home visitors throughout the country.

Dr. Wade is a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He completed his residency in Pediatrics at the University of Virginia and received his medical degree from Dartmouth University as well as a PhD in Molecular Microbiology from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

This session will be of particular interest to anyone who is involved in day-to-day prevention work, especially those who work within larger urban areas or are interested in new research.
