How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime | Nadine Burke Harris

Last Updated on July 14, 2017 by Cindy Bekesi

Pediatrician Nadine Burke began to see patterns among the children she treated in her practice. She noticed a large percentage of children coming in with the same symptoms and false diagnosis.

As a doctor with a string commitment to public health, she began to look for similarities among these children and discovered something striking – what they all had in common were Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACE’s. 

ACE’s, if which CDV is one, can impact a child’s health in diverse and serious ways. For this reason, Dr. Burke advocates for trauma-informed care and uses it frequently in her own practice. 

Watch her eloquent explanation of what ACE’s do to our health and how to curb one of the biggest health crises in the world.
