Capitalizing on Awareness: Bringing the FASD Message to the Forefront

SAMHSA's Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Center for Excellence held the ninth Building FASD State Systems (BFSS) conference May 1-3, 2012, in Arlington, Virginia. The ninth BFSS Conference was attended by 281 participants from 48 States and the District of Columbia, 2 U.S. Territories, and several Native American communities. The theme was "Capitalizing on Awareness: Bringing the FASD Message to the Forefront," a reference to the conference's proximity to the Nation's Capitol and to the profound growth in awareness surrounding FASD since the first BFSS conference in 2003.
