Community as Medicine

Robin Saenger, artist and Peace4Tarpon supporter, spoke to the Dunedin Rotary Club about the mental and physical health effects of trauma. Peace4Tarpon Trauma Informed Community Initiative is a  grassroots effort – the first of its kind in the nation. Peace4Tarpon looks through a “trauma informed lens” to seek the root causes of the city's most challenging issues rather than addressing symptoms. Peace4Tarpon is working to create a peaceful and thriving Tarpon Springs.

Robin shared with us the ACE trauma test. There are 10 types of childhood trauma measured in the ACE Study. Five are personal and five are related to other family members. An ACE score of 4 or more is correlated with higher risk of many chronic diseases. Want to know your ACE score? Click here!
