The Congressional Caucus on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) was founded in June of 2004 to educate Members of the United States House of Representatives on issues relevant to preventing fetal alcohol spectrum disorders and increasing the quality of life for those currently living with these debilitating birth defects. It recently unveiled its new Web site.
This bipartisan caucus will convene briefings, publicize events that influence national policy on FASD prevention, identification, and treatment, and provide a forum for members of Congress to establish a dialogue with individuals in government agencies, academia, tribal organizations, and nongovernmental groups that are working to prevent and treat FASD.
Please visit the new site and send thank yous, recommendations, and points of interest to the FASD Caucus co-Chairs Jim Ramstad and Frank Pallone, Jr. or other participating Members. If your US Representative is not a member of the FASD Caucus, urge him/her to join by clicking here.
