AHA Quarterly Partnership Meeting @ YMCA of the Triangle
Apr 7 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am

Please join us for our next Quarterly Partnership Meeting on Friday, April 7, 8:30-10:30 am for a screening of Resilience, a 60-minute film directed by James Redford on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their impact on health, quality of life, economics and education. Register here to attend.

Research shows ACEs are common, they affect all socioeconomic levels, and their impact on health and well-being is significant.  “The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”

View this highly acclaimed film with us to learn what ACEs are, how they increase the likelihood of disease and illness, and how together we as a community can mitigate the impact of ACEs for a healthy, thriving and economically strong Wake County.

Please register here as soon as possible, but no later than April 3. We look forward to seeing you!
