On "WorldCanvass: Resilience Over Trauma," Joan Kjaer and WorldCanvass guests investigated adverse childhood experiences and the negative physical and mental health consequences children and adults with these experiences may face. If left unaddressed and untreated, the toxic stress of childhood adversity can have serious health repercussions throughout a lifetime. But important advances are being made in the recognition and treatment of health issues related to adverse childhood experiences, many of them led by physicians and researchers at the University of Iowa. WorldCanvass host Joan Kjaer spoke with experts from a wide range of health disciplines as well as child advocates from the Iowa City Community School District and Johnson County.
