Steve Adubato sits down with Michael Lamacchia MD, Chairman of Pediatrics at St. Joseph's Children's Hospital, and Ilise Zimmerman, President & CEO of Partnership for Maternal and Child Health of Northern NJ, to discuss how adverse childhood experiences (ACES) make an impact on health and why it is important for medical professionals to go further in assessing and nurturing children.

A new report details the significant challenges and long-range consequences for children who have been exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in New Jersey. Sponsored by The Burke Foundation, The Nicholson Foundation and Turrell Fund, the report, Protecting and Healing Together, demonstrates how the effects of ACEs can be alleviated through a targeted and comprehensive statewide response.

The foundations that sponsored the report are interested in hearing from community voices across New Jersey to inform the ongoing work to combat ACEs in the state. Please fill out the form on the ACEs Collaborative site to let them know what you think of the information contained within this report, and how you can help play a role in the development of an ACEs Action Plan for New Jersey.
