General Information: As a follow-up to the 2008 National Conference on Preventing Substance-exposed Pregnancies sponsored by the ICCFASD, this conference will be expanded to highlight the intersection of harmful drinking among women, HIV infection, and adverse maternal-child health outcomes.
This is a national conference to:
1) disseminate findings from the latest research on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of alcohol and other substance misuse among girls and women, with special emphasis on strategies to prevent HIV infection/progression and substance-exposed pregnancies
2) publicize pertinent information from the 2016 Surgeon General’s Report on Addiction
3) develop a coalition of stakeholder organizations and researchers to develop a blueprint for a coordinated public-private response to epidemic substance misuse among women and girls.
