The Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Prevention Project
 Started Off with a Bang in Central Kentucky!
“NO amount of alcohol is safe during pregnancy”
The Arc of Kentucky kicked off their Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Prevention Awareness Campaign on October 1 in collaboration with the Kentucky Bluegrass Prevention Center. Through a grant provided by The Arc of the United States, FASD Toolkits are currently being distributed to local obstetricians, family practitioners, local health departments physicans and nurses offices in the pilot area of Central Kentucky.  Through this grassroots initiative staff and volunteers will meet personally with health care providers to bring them our message – no amount of alcohol is safe during pregnancy.  If you would like to be involved and help distribute toolkits please let us know.
