Episode 31: ACES Can Make You Sick!

“In the US, by the age of 8, 1 in 3 children have experienced at least one adverse childhood experience (ACE); by adolescence, it’s one-half and by adulthood, it’s 2 out of 3. The more ACEs a person has the greater their risk for serious developmental disabilities, behavior disorders, and chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease, stroke and cancer,”  proclaims Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician, Dr. Adiaha Spinks-Franklin while discussing childhood trauma with Dr. Candice.
