Hi, Heather:

You may be interested in joining the Primary Prevention group that Gladys Richardson just set up. Click on the "groups" tab and you'll see it. Her husband, Burtt, is a retired pediatrician, and Gladys did community outreach work. 

Cheers, Jane

Welcome to the ACEs Too High Network, Heather. Thanks for joining! 

Will you write a sentence or two describing your interest in ACEs? 

You can reply here, and I'll include it in the ongoing roundup of responses. Or you can post an introduction yourself, as some others have done (you can find those on the main page in the blog posts). It's easy to post an introduction -- just go to "My Page" (in the top navigation bar). Be sure to click on "blog post" at the top of the open box, put in a title, and then start typing in the box below. If you have any questions, please let me know.

And if you want to replace that ubiquitous blue head with your photo, just go to the top right of the page where you'll see a white box with your name at the top. Click on "Settings", a line at the bottom of a white box. And at the top of the page that opens, you'll see a place to upload a photo.

Also, you'll see that some people have also posted their photo on the photo page, which is a great idea. (You can also do that from "My Page".) You can even add a text block with more information about your work or avocation.

And don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about how to use this network. 

Cheers, Jane
