Long Island ACEs Screening Learning Collaborative – 2018 Highlights

This year Docs for Tots, in partnership with the Center for Youth Wellness, was able to bring together four pediatric practices across Long Island into a learning collaborative aiming to implement ACEs screening into practice. We are excited to present our accomplishments and plans for next year.

Our 2018 accomplishments included:

  • Partnership with the Center for Youth Wellness (CYW), the national experts in early childhood adversity
  • Six learning collaborative calls/meetings in conjunction with CYW to set up practices to learn about and launch ACEs screening in 2019
  • Four unique sites ready to screen, including private practice, physician network, FQHC, and academic institution
  • Two screenings of Resilience film with panel of early childhood experts in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties, with total audience of 150 people
  • Workshop about ACEs screening at Suffolk Health Disparities Conference reaching 100 people

In 2019, we plan to:

  • Fully integrate education and screening within the four practices in the Learning Collaborative
  • Share our knowledge to expand education about ACEs screening across Long Island
  • Direct educational outreach to families to spread knowledge and awareness of ACEs and how to address them
  • Spread professional awareness about ACEs and how to help families
