The Pennsylvania Fetal Alcohol Task Force promotes Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) as a significant public health issue using factual, research-based information. The goal of the Task Force is the development of a statewide comprehensive system of care that is dedicated to the prevention of FASD and to the diagnosis and treatment of those with FASD and support for their families.
