“Through the OceanPath Fellowship I hope to create a small snowball of change that will grow to help the many Canadians affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences by combining my love for science and passion for community building”
Calgary Urban Project Society (CUPS) and Father Scollen School
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in the form of abuse, neglect or household instability impact the proper neurological brain development of a child and often lead to detrimental long term mental, physical and emotion health outcomes. Through the OceanPath Fellowship I hope to continue to translate the knowledge of this critical brain science to front line workers serving Calgary’s most vulnerable populations.
