Manuscript from Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Professor Lily Xu and clinical colleague Dr. Christina Chamber receiving national attention
The paper (JAMA. 2018;319(5):474-482) reports the prevalence of fetal alcohol exposure effects in first grade children from four communities in the United States. Prevalence rates were remarkably high and underscore the public health significance of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (also called FASDs). Thoughtful and conservative interpretation of the dramatic statistical results observed was a central component of this high impact publication. We thank Dr. Xu for her contribution to this important result.
