Regional Health Connect-March 29th at 8:00 a.m. 

The March Regional Health Connect meeting will feature Dr. Brumage – Physician Director, Kanawha Charleston Health Department presenting on the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study.  

I have provided a link below that further describes the importance of understanding these issues and their impact on the health of those we serve.  We encourage you or someone from your organization to attend.

How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime.


Video Link information:  Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.
