Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Awareness Day – Sept 9, 2015

Many of the children we care for in foster care come to us having been exposed to alcohol and/or drugs while in utero.  September 9th of this year, marks a day of awareness regarding the importance of quality prenatal care and choosing to remain alcohol-free while pregnant.

The national Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration will be holding a free Fetal Alcohol Spectrums Disorder Awareness webinar on September 9, 2015, from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. CST, called “Healthy Baby, Healthy Life.”  The webinar will feature Lisa Ramirez and Leah Davies from  Texas FASD Collaborative, along with Dr. Turchi (Pediatrician) from Philadelphia, PA and Dr. Garry (OB-GYN) from NYC.  To register for this FREE event and for more information, please visit: http://fasdcenter.samhsa.gov/webinars/HealthyBabyHealthyLifeWebinar.aspx.
