The film and panel discussion will teach guests that an ACE (Adverse Childhood Experience) score:
- should be used as a tool to better understand family and community health needs
- can empower a parent to make changes in their lives and for their children
- supports the need to interrupt cycles of abuse and neglect in order to have a healthier community
- is about teaching individuals to become resilient in the face of adversity
