We are happy to say that since we know budgets are tight we’ve kept the 2011 registration and lodging rates at the Gaylord the same as in 2010!
This year’s conference theme, “Coalitions: Moving Forward, Mapping our Future,” builds on the fact that although there are always changes happening within our field, we have the power to determine our future. We have an exciting program planned, with bigger and better workshops, more networking opportunities, and dynamic plenary sessions.

Register now at: http://events.SignUp4.net/SHWI2010REG
This year's theme is "Join the Movement". One of the highlights of this year’s event is the roll-out of the new Alaska School Health and Safety Plan, which provides direction for moving towards a coordinated approach for school health and safety programs in the state.

The Institute will include pre-conference sessions and cover of variety of topics including obesity prevention, tobacco prevention, suicide and violence prevention, and more! The Moving Into Action – Combating Childhood Obesity strand is designed to provide registered participants three days of intensive training and planning for action. Additional details on this track will be provided for interested participants. In addition, the Institute will spotlight many local success stories from around Alaska.

Also, take advantage of the special post-conference training opportunities:
· October 7-8: There will be a two-day We Can! ® (Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity and Nutrition) training (held at a separate location) sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium.
· October 7: There will be a one-day Alaska Safe Routes to School Program training.
Who should come: Whether you are a school board member, an administrator, teacher, school nurse, school nutrition staff, counselor, parent, student, or other community member, you will learn new leadership skills and best practices for policies and programs that enhance student health and safety.

Hope to see you there!

Our understanding of FASD is entering a period of rapid expansion and change, dramatically increasing our comprehension of the breadth and depth of the global impact of this lifelong disability. This 4th International conference will provide an advanced forum for emerging and cutting edge research, policy and practice that will assist governments, service systems, service providers, parents and caregivers, as we strive to address the complex issues of FASD.
