Project Details Edit

  • Project Name: The Creation and Application of an Intervention for High ACEs Scores

  • Category:

  • Purpose of Grant: A recent NIH-Funded medical research study at Loma Linda University has identified a population of extremely healthy elderly people (centenarians and nonagenarians) who have high scores for Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) but who also exhibit exceptional resilience characteristics which have the potential to help medical researchers including Dr. Rhonda Spencer-Hwang develop a prescriptive, interventional treatment model to aid current and future generations of at-risk children by improving personal resilience in the face of their own high ACEs scores.
