Toxic Stress and Trauma

Childhood experiences, positive or negative, can have a major impact on long-term growth and development, and health. Negative or adverse childhood experiences can contribute to chronic disease, including mental and emotional conditions, in adulthood. These negative experiences are often referred to as toxic stress or adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).

Early Detection and Screening

Early detection of cancer in people without symptoms (also called screening) can help to find and treat cancer early, leading to better outcomes. Promoting nationally recognized screening tests is a priority for the Vermont Department of Health.

All Vermont adults should discuss cancer prevention, screening and early detection with their health care provider. This type of discussion can help idividuals better understand their risk for developing cancer, and decide what tests are most appropriate based on their specific family and health history.
