HerWay Home to be featured in FASD teleconference

22 August 2013

An international panel of 22 speakers from seven countries will be giving talks for families living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) in a 12-day Teleconference, starting September 9, 2013 — FASD Awareness Day.

Dr. Lenora Marcellus from the University of Victoria will be speaking about HerWay Home at 2:00 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, September 10.

HerWay Home is a child-focused, women-centred, and family-oriented clinic that offers a wide range of health and social services to expecting and new mothers with substance use and/or mental health issues. The program aims to improve the short and long term outcomes of both mothers and babies.

Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island has pledged $3.3 million over five years to HerWay Home, a commitment which fits in very well with our mission to provide children with every opportunity to thrive on Vancouver Island.

There is no fee to listen to Dr. Marcellus’s talk online within 48 hours of her delivering it. After that time, a $45 fee will be charged to access the 22 talks. Half of the funds raised will be donated to HerWay Home.
