Deb Evensen of Homer has worked in education about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders for 30 years. She’s still working for a wider awareness of those cruel afflictions, which are 100 percent preventable — but when not prevented, last for life.
You’d think she might despair. Instead, she has tremendous hope, both for better care and prevention.
Evensen was interviewed as part of the recent two-day Daily News series on FASD by Kyle Hopkins and Marc Lester.
