Goals

The Arctic FASD Regional Training Center has three primary goals in its work throughout Alaska:

1. Awareness

We will work to increase awareness, knowledge, and behavior change among medical and allied healthcare practitioners and students, while remaining sensitive to a rural and cultural context.

2. Resource Development

We will develop rurally tailored and culturally competent educational curricula, materials, and campaigns that will lead to increased knowledge, changed behavior, and modified training and licensure guidelines. These efforts will be aimed at making FASD highly visible in training program and healthcare settings across this vast region.

3. Resource Development and Dissemination

We will disseminate education and resources throughout the region to reach a maximum number of stakeholders who can help us realize the prevention of FASD and reduction of FASD risk behaviors, with sensitivity to rural/frontier realities and an understanding of cultural diversity.
