Addressing Childhood Trauma in Nash/Edgecombe and the Southeast

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.

Building Partnerships and Organizational Capacity to Address Social Drivers of Poor Health

Achieving greater equity in health outcomes will require genuine partnership between hospitals and health systems and the community organizations that are embedded in underserved areas or led by residents with low incomes. The Trust is interested in hearing from organizations and collaboratives working to build these partnerships to address a specific social driver of poor health.

Decreasing Health Disparities: Consumer Education and Feedback

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 ensure that low-income families are not harmed as payment models change, the Trust will support efforts to educate and protect consumers and promote patient feedback and information sharing among stakeholders.
