Resources for covering how adverse childhood experiences affect people's lives

Janice Lynch Schuster

Since the late 1990s, researchers have known about the negative effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on adult health, particularly their dose-related effect on risks for several major conditions, including cancer, heart disease, lung disease and suicidality.

For those just getting started in looking at the issue, AHCJ member Janice Lynch Schuster pulled together some basic tips on covering it, drawn in part from an event hosted by the Aspen Institute, a nonpartisan educational and policy organization based in Washington, D.C.  as well as a panel at Health Journalism 2017.
