Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
Prevention First is committed to reducing the number of babies who have been exposed to alcohol while in the womb. Our goals are to:
- Increase awareness about the dangers of drinking alcohol during pregnancy
- Increase understanding of FASD among healthcare professionals
- Increase the number of public policymakers who support prevention of FASD
What is FASD?
