In this webinar Drs. Michelle Sarche and Jessica Hanson explained the importance of a preconceptual approach to alcohol-exposed pregnancy prevention, detailing efforts to prevent alcohol-exposed pregnancy in American Indian communities in particular. They discussed how these efforts have informed the design and implementation of a new randomized controlled trial of Native-Changing High-risk Alcohol Use and Increasing Contraception Effectiveness Study (Native CHOICES) (an adaptation of CHOICES) with one Northern Plains American Indian community.

The webinar was presented on May 13th as part of the Native Center for Alcohol Research Education (NCARE) Webinar Series.
