2019 ACEs Learning Collaborative Program Highlights

2019 ACEs Highlights

Over the course of the ACEs Screening Learning Collaborative, Docs for Tots implemented universal ACEs screening in three sites in partnership with the Center for Youth Wellness – a private practice, a federally qualified health center, and a large academic institution. There is a plan to expand to the remaining Long Island Federally Qualified Health System in Nassau County, including three school-based centers, as well as a Federally Qualified Health Center affiliated with NYU.
