Additional Conference Events

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders: Moving from Awareness to Action - $50

The Rooted in Advocacy pre-conference event will put a spotlight on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). FASD refers to a range of effects that can occur when a developing fetus is prenatally exposed to alcohol. FASD can include physical, cognitive, behavioral, and/or learning disabilities with possible lifelong implications.  They can affect each person in different ways and range from mild to severe. FASD is the one developmental disability that is 100% preventable. State and national experts will share the latest prevalence research, how to expand diagnostic capacity in North Carolina, strategies for supporting individuals with an FASD, the importance of preventing alcohol-exposed pregnancies, and removing the stigma surrounding this diagnosis.  Presenters sharing their expertise include Dan Dubovsky, Dr. Phillip A. May, Kathleen Tavenner Mitchell, and Dr. Yasmin Senturias.
