A set of two pamphlets is presented on the topic of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Alcohol-Related Birth Defects.

It offers suggestions for developing a community prevention plan, establishing a speakers' bureau, and involving physicians. It also provides such sample materials as a fact sheet, posters, newspaper ads, press release, public service announcement, and survey form for a public opinion poll. "Have You Heard...About Alcohol and Pregnancy" is a cartoon booklet teaching prevention of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
