Call for PresentersCommunity members, health and allied health care professionals, families and individuals with an FASD, researchers and students are invited to submit an application to give a presentation, workshop, or host a panel at FASD: Best Practices in the Last Frontier.

The conference will focus on communicating, presenting, and reviewing best practices in Alaska - for interventions, for advocacy, for treatment, for assessment and diagnosis, for transition to adulthood, to name but a few. This is a community-based conference in the widest sense - we welcome everyone who lives with or works with someone experiencing an FASD, or has an FASD, to share their experiences about what works in their lives.
