Adverse childhood experiences (ACE) are associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and a variety of other health consequences for adults.

Throughout, we will focus on supporting self-care with a focus on recognizing and promoting resilience.

Topics include:

  • Discuss the benefits of assessing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) in individuals with diabetes.
  • State the relationship between ACE Scores and risk of future health complications.
  • Describe a person-centered approach to fostering resilience and self-care for individuals with toxic stress.
