Attention health care providers - we need your help to determine the rate of FAS in Alaska
In Alaska, fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is a reportable birth defect. All reportable birth defects must be reported to the Alaska Birth Defects Registry.
The Alaska Birth Defects Registry develops and distributes reports on the prevalence and extent of birth defects, including FASD, across Alaska. Click here to find out how you can help!
