"Pregnancy Tests in Bars" Study
The Arctic FASD RTC and the UAA Center for Behavioral Health Research & Services (CBHRS) have received questions about the upcoming pilot program that will place pregnancy tests in selected bars and restaurants around the state. The study will be conducted by the UAA Institute of Circumpolar Health Studies (ICHS), which is one of several research centers at UAA. We would like to clarify that UAA CBHRS and the CDC-funded Arctic FASD RTC are not involved in this initiative. If you have comments or questions about the pregnancy test program, please contact the program's director, Dr. David Driscoll, at 907.786.6575 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Arctic FASD Regional Training Center offers FASD Foundations and FASD 201: Developing Successful Interventions and Supports workshops every other month.

The training and workshop schedule will be updated frequently throughout the year as more training and speaker opportunities become available. To keep up to date with our workshop and speaker offerings, please join our Arctic FASD RTC mailing list.
