The Grants Pass School District is pleased to invite the Grants Pass community to public presentations on the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study, or ACES for short. This 90 minute presentation will cover what the study was, what we now know about the amazing ways we as humans adapt to our world, why ACES play a significant role in the quality of our health as adults, and most importantly, what we can do together to reduce adversity in our community and improve our overall health and quality of life.

We will serve a pizza dinner at 5:30 pm to everyone who can come. We will also be providing childcare for ages 3 to 10 (NOTE: childcare provided during the school year only and is not available during the summer trainings). We encourage you to bring your children to dinner. After dinner, our Grants Pass high school leadership students will be providing childcare for you. While they play, you can come to the presentation to learn about ACES, how it impacts most of us, and how we can become resilient through our adversity. The presentation will begin at 6 pm.

Interested? Click here and let us know you are coming. You will get a confirmation email when you register for the event. No email? No problem. Give us a call at (541) 474-5715 (press 1 at the voice message).
