“Making Great Places” Series – “Resilience” Film Screening | April 6

 Advocates for Health in Action and Wake County, in partnership with the YMCA of the Triangle, invite you to join other community leaders for a private screening and discussion of Resilience, a 60-minute film directed by James Redford on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their impact on health, quality of life, economics and education.

Research shows ACEs are common, they affect all socioeconomic levels, and their impact on health and well-being is significant. “The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”

View this highly acclaimed film with us to learn what ACEs are, how they increase the likelihood of disease and illness, and how together we as a community can mitigate the impact of ACEs for a healthy, thriving and economically strong Wake County.

Location: Marbles Kids Museum, 201 East Hargett Street, Raleigh
Check-in: 7:30 am
Screening & Conversation: 8:00-10:00 am
