Time: to
Location: St. Charles Library, Huntley Community Room

Note: this same documentary is available later this evening at 6:00pm

‘Resilience’ is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). The documentary reveals how toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brain and bodies of children putting them at greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time and early death. ‘Resilience’ chronicles a movement that is fighting back to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.

Presented by Jennifer Samartano, Northern Region Prevention Specialist from Prevent Child Abuse Illinois.
