If you're looking for the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) you have come to the right place. We have some exciting news about our organization. We have a new name! MOFAS has officially been renamed Proof Alliance. Our mission remains the same: to prevent prenatal alcohol exposure and to improve the quality of life for people living with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).
We now have the proof that prenatal alcohol exposure is a leading cause of brain injury in children. We have the proof that FASD is 100% preventable and people living with an FASD can reach 100% of their potential.
We seek to build powerful alliances with people with an FASD, their families, legislators, experts in the field, new partners, and community members to bring awareness, research, and services to this field.
Proof Alliance is rebranding, expanding, and we're moving! We have a new logo, website, and prevention campaign to help change the norms around drinking during pregnancy. And in May 2019 we will be moving to a stand-alone building. Proof Alliance commits to the people of Minnesota and we will continue to develop transformative programs to help Minnesotans impacted by FASD.
Due to an overwhelming response and a continued demand we are pleased to announce that we will present a live re-broadcast via webinar of the FASD Basics presented by Dr. Jeffrey Wozniak. This presentation is co-sponsored by the SAMHSA FASD Center for Excellence.
The first session of this broadcast sold out so we encourage interested participants to register early! If you are interested in participating in the live re-broadcast via webinar, then REGISTER HERE for the event.
Lead by national expert Dr. Jeff Wozniak, U of MN
