Through its cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) the AAP Division of Children with Special Needs Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) program staff convened an FASD Risk Communication Workshop from July 30–31, 2012 (executive summary).

This workshop included representatives from primary care organizations and focused on the development of consistent messages for providers to share with patients addressing the ongoing inconsistencies being reported in the media about alcohol use during pregnancy.
