Evidence continues to emerge about the negative social-emotional and health impacts of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress. Young children who have experienced significant trauma and toxic stress are more likely than their peers to have developmental delays and difficulty with self-regulation, which impacts their health and well-being. The Trust plans to support community engagement, awareness, and system change efforts that directly engage the communities most impacted by trauma and toxic stress in Nash, Edgecombe, Robeson, Columbus, and Bladen counties.

The shift to Medicaid managed care and new value-based care arrangements in the state could improve health outcomes for financially vulnerable residents or widen already steep racial and geographic disparities. To better understand the impact of these initiatives, the Trust will support data collection and analysis efforts that shed light on how patients with low incomes, especially Black individuals, immigrants, and people of color are faring as health care payment models change.
