ST Medical Monday: A Discussion of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Their Aftermath
On this edition of our show, we are discussing adverse childhood experiences (or ACEs) in Oklahoma. Specifically, we're talking about an in-depth series of articles about ACEs that ran in the Tulsa World earlier this summer. Our guests are Dr. Kim Coon, a Professor and the Director of Psychotherapy Education in the Department of Psychiatry at the OU-Tulsa School Of Community Medicine, and Ginnie Graham, a columnist with the World. Dr. Coon is one of the experts who was quoted in this series of articles, and Graham (who's been with the Tulsa World since 1994) is one of the writers who contributed to the series. Also, if so inclined, listeners can check for their own ACE score (and see what that score means) at this health-related link from NPR.org.
