Adverse Childhood Experiences and Education in Adolescents

Medical School/Institution:
Project Location/Site: Whitehaven High School, Memphis, Tennessee
Key Outcomes:
Through understanding the relationship between ACEs and different educational benchmarks, we can quickly identify signs of certain ACEs and provide personalized interventions for that specific ACE. One of the initial parts of creating a health program is conducting an assessment. Our initial assessment will focus on the relationship between ACEs and academic attainment benchmarks such as conduct, GPA, attendance and standardized test scores at Whitehaven High School in Memphis, Tennessee.
