On this weeks Podcast we are delighted to welcome Sarah Marikos who is the Executive Director of the ACE Resource Network.

ACE standing for 'Adverse Childhood Experiences'.

Sarah’s professional career has focused on the science of things that can hurt us and heal us. As an undergraduate at the University of California Berkeley, Sarah studied and conducted research on the US national opioid epidemic, the emergence of 2009’s H1N1 in-fluenza, and other major public health problems. 

But witnessing Hurricane Katrina’s devastating and inequitable impact on communities influenced her to pivot from the pre-med track to public health, deciding to pursue a master’s in public health (MPH) in epidemiology to better understand the confluence of factors that influence the health and well-being of people and communities.

Today Sarah says that she enjoys connecting people and data to improve systems in order to prevent harm and help people recover and heal.

In this episode we talk to Sarah about her journey and most importantly the impact that discovering the research around Adverse Childhood Experiences has on families and the impact that it could have on society if it was better understood by all.
