Provincial Focus Strongly on Preventing FASD

An article in last week’s Calgary Herald describes new Alberta initiatives to spread the message of preventing FASD.

The reporter indicates that as many as 36,000 Albertans may live with the incurable but manageable disability.  The focus for the government is to promote prevention by demonstrating what a woman’s support network can do to help.  In total, it is suspected that there are currently 450 new cases of FASD each year that could be prevented if women are assisted in making choices healthy for their growing babies.
