Addressing the opening of a two-day Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Summit in Anchorage Tuesday, Gov. Frank Murkowski and First Lady Nancy Murkowski expressed their distress at the level of alcohol abuse, especially among expectant mothers, and pledged their support for the medical and behavioral health professionals working to eliminate FAS, the only preventable birth defect. The two shared the stage with Diane Casto, state manager of Prevention and Early Intervention Services in the Department of Health and Social Services.

The conference is being attended by people from around the state - including Ketchikan.
