Learn about ACES Aware, the California partnership between medical and community-based providers and the prevention sector. The program trains pediatric providers across the state on how to conduct ACES screening, reimbursable by MediCal (California’s Medicaid). Community partnerships go beyond screening to help ensure that children and families are connected to services and supports that build protective factors.
