Dr. Sandra Kelly will discuss the evidence showing that alcohol during development is harmful to the developing fetus with particular emphasis on the brain. She will discuss the many interacting factors such as improper nutrition, stress, and genetics that can interact with alcohol to increase the likelihood of altered brain function.
