International FASD Day is on September 9th

On the ninth day of the ninth month of the year, the world will remember that during the nine months of pregnancy a woman should abstain from drinking alcohol.

International FASD Awareness Day is less than a month away – it just might be time to start thinking about organizing an event for your workplace, organization or community. Activities can be small and (gasp) even fun – check out what the Edmonton Fetal Alcohol Network is up to below.
