Big thxoxo to the brilliant California Surgeon General Nadine Burke Harris for her ongoing dedication to building stronger care giver infrastructures that effectively enable young children to thrive and be healthier! She is a crusader who understands the critical importance (and high value) of quality early child care, and is a hero for babies worldwide.
“What the science has shown us is that it is possible to mitigate against the impacts of childhood adversity by buffering the toxic stress response,” says Dr. Burke Harris. “With care giving support, we can see neurological, immunological, endocrine, and epigenetic changes in individuals that have had exposure to ACEs.” For more details on this initiative see: https://www.acesaware.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Cost-of-ACEs-in-California.pdf
“Adverse Childhood Experiences and toxic stress will cost California over a trillion dollars in the next 10 years,” said California Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke Harris.

~25% of the San Francisco Bay region may be exposed to liquefaction with the shaking that has been forecasted. Some of the most hazardous areas are beneath our urban core. What is the grade of the land you and your loved tread?
New maps show the distribution of rock and sediment having different vulnerabilities to liquefaction when shaken by earthquakes, together with explanation of the process and examples of its effects.
The underlying premise is that a major disaster will overwhelm first responders leaving many San Francisco citizens on their own for the first 72 hours or longer after the emergency. The Neighborhood Emergency Response Team Training Program (NERT) goal is to teach as many San Franciscan’s as possible that, with basic training, they can make a difference in the lives of their families and others when, not if, they are affected by a disaster large or small.
