<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Katherine Baucom

ACEs are childhood events that vary in length and severity, occurring within a child’s family or social environment that cause harm or distress, thereby disrupting the child’s physical or mental health and development. Although the impact of ACEs on mental health outcomes is well documented, less is known of the mechanisms through which exposure to ACEs affects health. This narrative review will summarize the literature on the mechanisms related to physical health outcomes specifically.
