ACEs Aware Initiative Unveiling
Trainings are Now Available!
Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, in partnership with Gov. Newsom, the state Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), and health and community leaders, is leading system reform that recognizes, and responds to, the effects that ACEs have on our biological systems and addresses the lifelong impacts of ACEs. A key part of that work is the ACEs Aware initiative. Beginning January 1, 2020, DHCS will provide a payment to Medi-Cal providers for screening their patients for ACEs. The Office of the California Surgeon General and DHCS are partnering with organizations across the health care system and California’s communities to ensure that these providers have the training, tools, and resources they need to effectively incorporate ACEs screening into patient care.
