The primary objective of this study is to estimate the prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in a low-income, uninsured, adult population and to examine the relationship between ACEs and adult cardiovascular risk. A secondary object is to see if insurance, social support or inclusion, or neighborhood cohesion can modify any identified risk.
