  • MNAFEE Regional Meeting will be held in Worthington on Oct. 13

    Minnesota Association for Family and Early Education (MNAFEE) presents the Fall 2017 Professional Development Workshops: Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Programs & Communities. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study findings represent a paradigm shift in understanding of the origins of physical, social, mental, and societal health and well-being. We now know that leading causes of disease and disability, learning and productivity problems, and early death have their roots in the cumulative neuro-developmental impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). The presentation provides information about the ACE study, along with neurobiology that explains why ACEs impact people’s lives, and what we can all do to dramatically improve health and resilience for this and future generations. 

    Presenter: Minnesota Communities Caring for Children Registration check-in opens at 8:30. Workshops start at 9 a.m. and end at 3 p.m.  Worthington session will be held at the Bio Advancement Center (BAC).

    Register online or by mail using the Mail-In Registration Form posted online at www.mnafee.org.

    Registration Fees: $50 for MNAFEE members - $60 for non-members
