This report presents breaking news from the people of Washington State, viewed through the lens of a bundle of science we are calling "NEAR": Neuroscience, Epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and Resilience.

The source of data used to generate maps, data tables and charts in this report is the Washington State Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, or "BRFSS." The Learning Institute at Healthy Gen has been working consistently to improve the data and in this report presents a look at the current ACEs burden in Washington by age and geography, information on the intergenerational transmission of ACEs, and the potentially mitigating effects of social support, help and community reciprocity factors.
