EVERY PREGNANCY MATTERS

NOFAS-Missouri is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific and educational purposes, and provides education, training, support, and advocacy on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).

NOFAS Missouri, through the work of Dr. Leigh Tenkku Lepper and her team at the University of Missouri, is part of the CDC Collaborative in developing discipline-specific training for healthcare providers directed towards reducing the number of women who may drink during the pregnancy period. This collaborative developed online training on prevention of alcohol-exposed pregnancies for the disciplines of Family Medicine, Nursing, Social Workers, OBGYNs and Medical Assistants. Pediatricians were also included in this project focused more on identification and diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.
