'Good Morning, Children's Mercy!' 

Research has shown that prolonged exposure to Adverse Childhood Experiences such as domestic violence, physical abuse and emotional neglect affects people not just while they’re young, but also into adulthood. Physical as well as mental health can be impacted. In this podcast, Denise Dowd, MD, MPH, PEM, Director of Research, Emergency & Urgent Care, and Donna O’Malley, PhD, RN, Emergency & Urgent Care Services Nurse Researcher, talk with Jason  about how you can help Children’s Mercy efforts addressing the problem by being “trauma informed” and supportive of initiatives such as screening for adverse childhood experiences. (Time: 11:28)
