Promoting Substance-Free Pregnancies and Addressing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs)

MSU banner Final 1

In collaboration with the Center for Health and Safety Culture (CHSC) at Montana State University, NACCHO is partnering with local health departments to prevent substance-exposed pregnancies and address fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). NACCHO and CHSC are working to develop educational offerings for health department staff to build knowledge and capacity and create tools and resources to integrate substance-exposed pregnancy and FASD prevention into existing efforts. To support these efforts, NACCHO and CHSC are convening the Partners for Substance-Free Pregnancies Network, a group of multidisciplinary partners from local health departments to share resources and learn from each other through peer-to-peer information exchange.

Promoting Substance-Free Pregnancies Webinar

NACCHO and MSU recently hosted a webinar on promoting substance-free pregnancies. The webinar highlighted resources and opportunities for LHDs to help prevent substance use during pregnancy and FASDs.
