About the webinar: 

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a complex condition resulting from prenatal exposure to alcohol. It affects brain development and can lead to lifelong challenges. As dietitians, we play a critical role in supporting pregnant clients and their babies through evidence-based nutritional interventions.

In this webinar, Melanie discusses how dietitians can minimise FASD-associated behavioural issues through Early Life Nutrition interventions.

As part of your purchase you will receive a  webinar workbook that will test your knowledge and help you consolidate your learnings.
