About The Event
Join us for this free collaborative conference that will identify issues involving Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS), discuss possible solutions from the perspectives of community organizations, researchers and funders, and develop a plan of execution to combat the issues identified.
Non-profit organizations – this is a great opportunity to connect with funding and researchers!

From 2009 to 2012, NAS cases grew from 3.4 to 5.8 per 1,000 hospital births with higher incidence rates in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama.
With incidence rates rising, what can we do to combat this issue? What can you do within your organization? We need a plan.
