Over the past two decades, a growing body of epidemiological research has shown us just how common experiences of trauma and adversity in childhood are, as well as the staggering impact they can have on lifelong health and well-being. With evidence of these impacts now well-established, we often ask, “But what can we do about it?” Best Starts for Kids hopes to be part of the answer to that question.
We are deeply grateful for Adrienne’s leadership with our department and with Best Starts for Kids.
