Speakers Bureau

MOFAS is the statewide source for training and education on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), and we are happy to provide accurate and up-to-date information on FASD to your community.  Last year, over 3,800 individuals where trained on FASD throughout Minnesota.

Our volunteer Speakers Bureau is a small group of committed individuals that share their personal experiences with professional and service related organizations. Our speakers work alongside young adults with an FASD to help empower them to share how prenatal alcohol exposure impacts their lives on a daily basis, and they work with the Circle of Hope/Birth Mother’s Network to overcome the stigmatization of alcoholism, addiction, and FASD.

Places where speakers have presented include:

  • conferences exhibitor booths
  • business group speaking engagements
  • classes at local schools and universities
  • conferences
  • parent and support groups
  • professional organization speaking engagements
  • religious groups
  • social service organizations and government agencies

To request a speaker or if you would like to become a member of the Speakers Bureau, please contact Ruth Richardson, ruth@mofas.org or 651-917-2370
