NOFAS addresses mixed messages in the media about alcohol use during pregnancy

Since the fall, with the widespread public discussion of a UK research paper condoning an occasional drink, the topic of whether light or occasional drinking during pregnancy is okay has been a mainstay in the media. (See previous posts Study Stirs Up Public Uncertainty and Media Discussion (October 6, 2010) and Experts respond to UK study on acceptability of light drinking during pregnancy (October 7, 2010) for background on the response to the UK study).

The National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (NOFAS) in the United States has created a 4 minute video on the topic of light drinking. The video is comprised of interviews with doctors, researchers, and others in the FASD field, including Philip May, Michael Charness, Kieran O’Malley, Claire Coles, Kathy Sulik, Jennifer Thomas, and Susan Fleisher.  The interviews were conducted at the 4th International FASD conference in Vancouver in March 2011.
