Arctic Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Regional Training Center


From 2008-2014 the UAA Center for Behavioral Health Research and Services provided education and training about fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) to health and allied health care providers and students in Alaska and beyond through the Arctic FASD Regional Training Center (Arctic FASD RTC). Funding was provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Arctic FASD RTC's goal was to educate and train professionals and students in the health and allied healthcare fields. Our curriculum was based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's seven FASD Core Competencies

As funding for this project has now ended, the Arctic FASD RTC is no longer providing training or workshops.

Template PowerPoint presentations, handouts, and other resources are available for download at our Trainer's Site.
