“Even with a pandemic raging, Nadine Burke Harris, a pediatrician who is serving as the first state surgeon general of California, set a goal that had nothing to do with the coronavirus: training 20,000 medical professionals in her state in a kind of health assessment known as the ACEs [adverse childhood experiences] score. … Burke Harris believes ACEs awareness can help address the emotional and psychological toll of the pandemic, and is relying on, a new website run by the nonprofit ACE Resource Network, to help promote that awareness.
