Children born with fetal alcohol syndrome suffer lifelong physical and mental impairments. To prevent and reduce the harm caused by alcohol consumption during pregnancy, Governor Arne H. Carlson created a task force, co-chaired by First Lady Susan Carlson and Hennepin County Juvenile Court Judge Joan Lancaster, to study this problem and recommend ways in which government, health care providers, educators and others can respond to this tragedy.
The task force’s report, Suffer the Children: The Preventable Tragedy of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, looks at how fetal alcohol syndrome affects individuals, their families and their communities, how much it costs and what can be done to prevent it.
