Lifetime effects of alcohol use during pregnancy
Join national experts in the field of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) as they present the latest research and practices regarding prevention, diagnosis and strategies for living with the neurodevelopmental conditions associated with the use of alcohol during pregnancy.
This summit will highlight the impact that alcohol use during pregnancy has on the individual, families and communities. While the incidence of the more well-known fetal alcohol syndrome is approximately 1 in 1,000 births, there is a wide range of other neurodevelopmental health effects – FASDs – that can be caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. The incidence of those effects is estimated to be as high as 1 in 100 births, making FASDs more common than autism or Down syndrome. Experts and community members will address this urgent problem.
