Laura Porter, Senior Director of the Learning Institute at Foundation for Healthy Generations explores Washington state data related to NEAR science & new Resilience factor findings.
NEAR science is a cluster of science that stands for Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACEs, and Resilience. This cluster gives us a more whole picture of the experiences over the lifecourse and over generations.
Plenary speaker at September 2014 Coalescing for Change conference, Laura Porter directs the Learning Institute for Foundation for Healthy Generations. She oversees analysis of ACE and resilience data from Washington youth and adults, and works with local and state leaders to embed developmental neuroscience and resilience findings into policy, practice and community norms.
Laura is an award winning public servant who is best known for directing systemic improvements to the child and family serving system in Washington. For 17 years Laura worked with Washington State officials and community and Tribal leaders to embed ACE Study and related neuroscience and resilience findings into policy, practice and community norms. Laura and her colleagues developed a unique model for improving the capacity of communities to deliver stunning results for a small investment. Communities using the model have documented reductions in the rates of seven major social problems and Adverse Childhood Experience scores among young adults.
