Alcohol consumption in pregnancy is the leading preventable cause of childhood developmental delay.  This seminar will focus on the challenging but important area of identifying and preventing such harm.  Bringing together research teams from across the UK, and with a keynote address from WHO-Europe, it will focus on the latest evidence on how to appropriately identify and prevent alcohol consumption in pregnancy, and future innovation in this field.  Speakers: Lisa Scholin (World Health Organisation); Dr Elizabeth Henderson and Dr Helen Mactier (Princess Royal Maternity Hospital, Glasgow); Dr Niamh Fitzgerald (University of Stirling); Prof Dave Tappin (University of Glasgow); Cheryl McQuire (Cardiff University); Helen Howlett (Northumbria University); Dr Andrew Symon (University of Dundee).
