The ACE Project Team alongside Miami-Dade County public school (M-DCPS) Curriculum Support Specialist, Gladys Duran, hosted a professional development workshop designed for M-DCPS teachers, counselors, and administrators to provide the most recent information regarding electronic nicotine delivery system (e.g., e-cigarette) use and trauma-informed care. ACE Project principal investigators, Dr. Elisa Trucco and Dr. Matthew Sutherland presented on e-cigarette use/vaping among adolescents. Dr. Nicole Fava, Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work within the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work at FIU and an affiliate of the CCF provided the presentation on trauma-informed care for the second portion of the workshop. The ACE Project team looks forward to additional upcoming events in collaboration with MDCPS!
