Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FSAD) is an umbrella term describing conditions caused by prenatal alcohol use, which affect approximately 40,000 infants every year. Professionals can play an important role in providing information to the public and preventing FASDs. This free presentation via Zoom will take a deeper look into both the causes and short and long-term effects of FSADs. We will also dispel some of the common myths surrounding FASDs and provide the most up to date information!
Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) is a group of conditions caused when an infant withdraws from certain drugs (usually opioids) after being exposed in utero. Learn about the signs of NAS and the complications that can develop as the child grows and develops.
This workshop is geared toward professionals who are interested in messaging and prevention.
