Essentials for Childhood: Preventing Adverse Childhood Experiences through Data to Action

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched a funded program focused on preventing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and promoting positive childhood experiences (PCEs). These efforts will help reduce leading causes of death, mental health challenges, health risk behaviors such as substance use, and verified reports of child abuse and neglect. NICRP is working in partnership with the University of Nevada, Reno School of Public Health to improve ACEs and PCEs surveillance infrastructure and capacity, implement and sustain ACEs prevention strategies, and use ACEs/PCEs data for action.
