More than 300 guests came together at Prescription: Strength 2023 to raise friends and funds, and to learn about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). The program included inspiring stories of hope and healing, along with insights into recent advances in pediatric care, and introduced an innovative early screening tool that can lead to intervention and better health for future generations. “Knowing what our patients have been through helps us build strong, trusting relationships and provide trauma-informed care,” shared Jenny Bush, MD, Pediatrics. By providing care across the lifespan, patients are supported in navigating ACEs, and the negative impacts are reduced in adulthood.
Dr. Bush continued, “We can review resiliency factors with our patients – the factors that make up the difference between people that have a bad experience change their lives permanently and those that have a bad experience and go on to have a wonderful, healthy life. For patients that would benefit from counseling, we help them with access to services that can address traumas, build resilience, and break the generational cycles that are often present.”
