[Elizabeth Blakemore, El Dorado County Child Abuse Prevention Council]

"Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope" on February 3rd 
1st Saturday of Every Month at 1:00 pm

This film looks at the birth of the CDC-Kaiser Permanente ACE (Adverse Childhood Experience) study and how it's spawned a movement across the U.S. 

Directed by James Redford (Robert's son) the film runs only one hour and a discussion will be facilitated after by Lucy Oliveira who is our EDC ACEs Collaborative Representative here on the Divide and Naomie Harris our Hub 4 Community Health Advocate. Watching and talking about a film with other people multiplies its value.

Sponsored by the Georgetown Friends of the Library
