Arctic Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Regional Training Center (Arctic FASD-RTC)

This Arctic FASD-RTC is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Cooperative Agreement #U84DD000886-01.

In late 2008, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was awarded CBHRS a three-year grant to develop a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Regional Training Center (RTC). The Arctic FASD RTC seeks to increase FASD practice competence among medical and allied healthcare practitioners and students through developing and disseminating rurally-relevant and culturally-competent educational curricula, materials, and campaigns that will lead to increased knowledge, changed behavior, and modified training and licensure guidelines to make FASD highly visible in training program and healthcare settings.

The Arctic FASD RTC will train healthcare professionals, including social workers, speech and language therapists, physicians, nurses, and psychologists, as well as students in these health professions. All resources, once developed, will be made available at no cost to providers and educators in the region.

The Arctic FASD RTC will build upon past and current efforts in Alaska:

  • FASD CDC Surveillance Project
  • Alaska State Office of FAS
    (5-year Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA] Grant)
  • FASD prevention, diagnostic, and intervention services
  • FASD Summits
  • FASD Prevention Collaborative Partnerships
  • And many more statewide efforts

In addition to the Arctic FASD RTC, there are four other RTCs in operation around the United States: the Frontier FASD RTC, the Great Lakes FASD RTC, the Midwestern FASD RTC, and the Southeastern FASD RTC. All are funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. See more at Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Regional Training Center (RTC).

The CDC published a resource article Alaska Public Health Nurses Address Alcohol.
