What matters is what you play for.” and encouraging youth through learning and living good values of Respect, Kindness, Integrity, Courage, Hardworking, Humility and Peaceful that Ernie Davis displayed throughout his short life of 23 years.

The CDC-Kaiser Permanente adverse childhood experiences (ACE) study is one of the largest investigations of childhood abuse and neglect and household challenges and later-life health and well-being. The original ACE study was conducted at Kaiser Permanente from 1995 to 1997 with two waves of data collection. Over 17,000 Health Maintenance Organization members from Southern California receiving physical exams completed confidential surveys regarding their childhood experiences and current health status and behaviors.
