Harnett County - Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope

December 09 @ 03:30 PM - 04:45 PM

The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope viewing will be held from 3:30-4:45 at the Harnett County Library, 601 S. Main St., Lillington.  The hour-long film focuses on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), what Dr. Robert Anda and Laura Porter of ACE Interface have termed, “the greatest public health discovery…most important public health movement of our time.” Resilience delves deep into the science behind ACEs and the havoc the syndrome can wreak on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, depression, substance abuse and other lifelong effects on health and behavior. The film also examines how the toxic stress produced by ACEs also creates long-term impact on our communities.  Refreshments will be served free of charge.  To register, contact Adrian Standish at 1-877-776-6702 or email at leeharnettfsp@yahoo.com.
