    In the mid-1990s a statewide fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) prevention program was begun at CASAA, and has been led by Jerome Romero since that time. Jerome has shared the information about the harm that can be done to the developing fetus if a pregnant woman drinks alcohol. Jerome created universal FASD prevention tools including: posters, pamphlets, public service announcements, t-shirts, and coasters. His work also includes working with adolescents through a peer education project (GRADS Program) whereby teens are trained to teach other teens about the dangers of drinking alcohol during pregnancy.
