Sunday September 09, 2018 marks the nineteenth annual International Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Awareness Day. This year also marks another milestone in that it was forty-five years ago that FASD was recognized as a medical diagnosis.
During FASD Awareness Day, we will carry messages that urge and support women to have alcohol free pregnancies. We will also provide information that will help identify and support individuals who have FASD and their circles of support. This year we will be celebrating International FASD Awareness Day on Friday September 7th with a BBQ, Mocktail Challenge and the draw for Scavenger Hunt winners.
We are looking for teams of 2-4 people to participate in our Mocktail challenge this year, and would like to invite you to put a team in. I have attached our poster for the event with all the details.
The Lakeland Centre for FASD provides cost-free programs and services in the Cold Lake, Bonnyville, St. Paul and Lac la Biche areas, as well as on First Nations and Métis Settlements through Alberta.
