Just when we think people are too busy …

FASD Awareness Day Poster

Attached is a FASDAY 2016 poster, the work of a Year 13 student from Lynfield College in Auckland who chose FASD Awareness resources for her level 3 NCEA Design & Visual Communication Subject.  Please feel free to print, save and share (oh, and it will have 2017 on it for next year). We think she has done a fine job and wish her well for the future!

FASD Awareness Day NDHB Special Edition

Attached is a Special Edition of Alcohol and Other Drugs Update compiled especially for FASDAY by Dave Hookway from Northland DHB. It is wonderful to see our growing collective efforts to raise awareness and support for FASD prevention and intervention gathered together in one place!  Isn’t it amazing what happens with very little when good people get together!   Thank you for compiling and enabling others to share this useful resource Dave.
