December 9 Talk at ISER. Adverse Childhood Experiences: What Do Adult Alaskans Report?

Over the past 20 years, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) studies have linked a variety of health and social problems among adult Americans to neglect or abuse they experienced as children. Patrick Sidmore is a planner with the Alaska Mental Health Board, and he has been a leader in analyzing ACE data for Alaska. At ISER he talks about the results of a 2013 survey documenting adverse childhood experiences among adult Alaskans, and the health, social, and economic consequences that can be traced to those experiences. Mr. Sidmore holds degrees in economics and management, as well as social work.
