VA-AAP Partners With NJAAP to Recruit For The TASIE Project

Changing The Standard of Pediatric Primary Care That Recognizes the Impact of ACEs

VA-AAP is working with the NJAAP to recruit for the Trauma-informed ACEs Screening and Intervention Evaluation Project.


The Trauma-informed ACEs Screening and Evaluation (TASIE) Project ECHO utilizes a toxic stress framework to integrate ACEs screening and trauma-informed strengths-based interventions that will change the standard of pediatric primary care that recognizes the impact of ACEs on health and effectively treats toxic stress in children.


The TASIE Project is funded by the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) and is being conducted through a partnership with the New Jersey Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (NJAAP), Center for Youth Wellness (CYW) – a program of Safe & Sound, & Kaiser’s Center for Community Health & Evaluation (CCHE). We are grateful for your support and look forward to working with you to improve the health and well-being of children across the United States!



The chapter offers a number of ways to stay current on what is happening across the state.  With over 1300 members, we communicate through member alerts, newsletters, legislative updates,  and active Facebook and Twitter accounts.  For those wanting to connect with other pediatricians in their communities, we also provide membership to regional email groups enabling members to share their collective experiences and knowledge.  There is no more important time than NOW to be a part of the Virginia Chapter as so much is on the line for children and pediatricians.
