The focus of the webinar is to learn about the connections and progress of collaborative efforts from three compelling perspectives of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), including:

  • What’s crucial to know about living with FASD and mental health issues– if you’re a parent, caregivers, front line provider or community member
  • The important role of front line health providers in prevention, and in talking to women about alcohol use throughout life - especially during pregnancy
  • What exciting new research is telling us about the differences and similarities between the brains of children and youth with FASD, autism and cerebral palsy

The presenters are some of our key stakeholders:
