Province To Partner With VON on FAS Centre

The Victorian Order of Nurses will operate the provincial fetal alcohol spectrum disorder centre of excellence.

Health Minister Ted Flemming says the VON is a solid partner that has been around for more than 100 years in the province.

The centre of excellence will provide prevention, diagnosis and intervention services with the central office in Moncton and regional program facilitators all over the province.

Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder is an umbrella term used to describe the spectrum of disabilities associated with prenatal exposure to alcohol.
