Dear Colleague,

Today, the first-ever California Surgeon General’s Report was released, Roadmap for Resilience: The California Surgeon General’s Report on Adverse Childhood Experiences, Toxic Stress, and Health. This report was co-authored by CIAPM Co-Director Dr. Julianne McCall, with contributions from Co-Director Dr. Shannon Muir, former Science Fellow Dr. Ken McCullough, and Policy Fellow Gloria Kim, design by Science Communications Specialist and Administrator Megan Varvais, and reference management by Policy Fellows April Booth and Aiyana Emigh Cortez.

The 438-page report is a product of experts across specialties and geographic areas. Organized around primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention strategies, the report includes stand-alone summaries for various sectors, including health care, education, early childhood, justice, and social services.

California Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke Harris will present key findings from the report in a public webinar tomorrow, December 10, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. PT. Registration can be found at https://bit.ly/2LmoJ2Z

We at CIAPM were honored to partner with the Office of the California Surgeon General to develop this important resource and look forward to continuing to advance the science of ACEs with the announcement of awardees of our ongoing Request for Proposals for ACEs research in March.

Kind regards,

The CIAPM Team
