A success story - a community led collaboration with remote Aboriginal Australia.
Presented by Professor Elizabeth Elliott AM

In her lecture, Professor Elliott describes the features of FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder) and the efforts currently being made around Australia to prevent alcohol use in pregnancy and FASD. She will speak about how to identify and assist children with FASD and how to support their parents and carers.

She will highlight the need to restrict access to alcohol through legislative changes and to change drinking behaviours in Australian communities.
