Ask Dr. Marilyn Benoit, Devereux Senior Vice President and Chief Medical and Clinical Officer, to name one of the most valuable tools in the treatment of patients, and you might be surprised to learn it is a simple 14 question survey. The ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) Survey, despite its existence for almost 20 years, has finally begun to infiltrate the mainstream of professional medicine, which, says Dr. Benoit, is to the benefit of not only patients, but society as a whole.

The ACE survey is a list of questions meant to tally the number of negative experiences a person endured during childhood, like abuse, neglect and abandonment, among others.

“I am proud that Devereux has already embraced what I see as the future of medicine. The legacy of the ACE Study will be that it helped change the way we understand the brain, improving public health for all people,” says Dr. Benoit.
