About the presenters:


Rose Hawkins is the regional disability advisor for the northernmost region of the New Zealand child protection and youth justice organisation, Ministry of Vulnerable Children Oranga Tamariki. Rose realised that much of her work is about support for children, young people and families grappling with the lifelong effects of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). To address this and raise awareness Rose has collaborated with Alcohol Healthwatch and the FASD Centre Aotearoa and developed FASD resources which are “easily digestible” including the FASD Eyebite Cards. Rose’s health and disability career started in physiotherapy, working in diverse clinical areas and management positions across the sector.


Dr Anne Heath has a background in community services (alcohol and drug, youth work, disability, mental health, homelessness). Anne recognised that hidden FASD often underpins many challenges across the community sector and has since contributed to awareness raising and community education across Australia. Anne currently works as the national educator at NOFASD Australia and as a Lecturer at the University of Tasmania.
