Disrupting Toxic Stress in Children to Prevent Health Impacts


From Medical Xpress: “In an effort to address ACEs in young patients in Oakland, Long in 2012 created the hospital’s Family Information and Navigation Desk, or FIND Program. Operating within the children’s primary care clinic, FIND screens families for basic social needs and connects them with community resources, such as counseling, food-stamp programs and housing support. Follow-up is also critical to ensure families are getting what they need.

The FIND Program currently employs core volunteer resource specialists and staff trained by a social worker to navigate the maze of resources, government agencies and nonprofits, that can help minimize the social and environmental factors negatively impacting patients’ health.”
