SMALL TALK #1-C

Creating Effective Program Metrics and Evaluations: Three Approaches

The objective of this session is to promote ongoing self-evaluation practices for projects and programs of any size and mission. Three approaches will be recommended and explained: (1) the classic logic model, (2) Results-Based Accountability (Mark Friedman), and (3) dash boarding to track and trend performance and outcomes over time against established benchmarks.

SMALL TALK #2-C
Exploring Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): Public Health Impact and Solutions

Sustained toxic stress early in life, without buffering relationships, can significantly alter the brain's architecture, gene expression, and health throughout the lifespan. The immediate and long-term effects of unaddressed ACEs can manifest in everything from preschool expulsion to school violence, addiction, depression, chronic disease, unemployment, and early death.

To break the Intergenerational cycle of trauma and ACEs, a cross-sector Public Health prevention approach must be used. This session will interactively explain ACEs, their impact on the brain, how they alter gene expression and examine how a public health approach can impact population level change and long-term health outcomes.
