Through the Public Health Agency of Canada our goal is to educate and increase the awareness of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder or FASD.
Annually, FASD Day is commemorated on September 9th. This date is recognized worldwide. Why was September 9th chosen? On the ninth minute of the ninth hour of the ninth day of the ninth month, the world is asked to remember that during the nine months of pregnancy, a woman should not drink alcohol. We also want to remember those millions of individuals who will not reach their genetic potential because of the birth defects typical for FASD.
Please join us by setting a good example for our future generations and remember during pregnancy...no alcohol...not even a drop!
