The CDC has many free, online trainings are available for healthcare providers who care for women at risk for an alcohol-exposed pregnancy, and for those who work with individuals living with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). These online trainings provide strategies to improve the delivery of care related to FASDs and their prevention.

Their website includes information and courses targeted to social workers, nurses, ObGyns, pediatricians, medical assistants, and family medicine practitioners.

This website is the product of the Collaborative for Alcohol-Free Pregnancy, a project of the CDC, NOFAS, and partners across a range of health disciplines.
