According to the attached Press Release issued by the Health Department, the documentary is regarding Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) and their impact on health. Healthy Start Program Manager, Valerie Eldridge, states, "Through the Nassau Infant Mortality Taskforce, local service providers are examining how ACEs affect maternal and infant health outcomes and are developing strategies to prevent and to intervene when ACEs occur. The first step to lowering the occurrence of ACEs and caring for those who have experienced them, is community awareness and education. Screening the documentary, Resilience, aligns with that goal".
Light refreshments and information on local resources will be available at this free event. If you have any questions, please contact the Nassau County Health Department at (904) 875-6100.
