Everyday routines can provide wonderful opportunities to incorporate STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning into a child’s day in meaningful and relevant ways.  Explore resources and strategies that will engage young children in age-appropriate, STEM-related activities that connect to everyday routines.

Please join Early Ages Healthy Stages to celebrate the end of our early childhood health and wellness project with Tufts University.  We are excited to highlight the work by community partners to improve health and wellness efforts in early education environments.

Cuyahoga County is using a policy, systems, and environment approach to see how early childhood wellness is connected to being ready to learn.  Through this project, we found strategies and actions that support community members working together to improve the health and development of our future generation.

ACEs and Toxic Stress: Rewriting the Story for the Next Generation @ Global Center for Health Innovation Atrium Ballroom
Mar 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Over the last several years, healthcare providers and researchers are exploring the link between adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and physical health, mental health, and addiction. The first study, published in 1998, found that children who experience ACEs (everything from divorce, domestic violence, and physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse) are more likely to suffer from “toxic stress” which can increase their risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other costly and potentially debilitating health conditions as an adult.

Pediatrician Dr. Nadine Burke Harris has emerged as one of the strongest voices advocating for a public health campaign addressing ACEs and their potential effects on long-term health. She has developed screening methods to treat families and children experiencing toxic stress. Her work was featured in the documentary Resilience which debuted at the 2016 Cleveland International Film Festival.

Given that two-thirds of Americans experience at least one significant ACE, what does this mean for long-term health of Americans? What is being done—both in Cleveland and around the country—to properly diagnose and treat the physical, mental, and emotional effects of toxic stress?
