Science and the Drug Exposed Infant

As part of a program at New York University School of Law recently on Drugs, Pregnancy and Parenting: What the Experts in Medicine, Social Work and Law Have to Say, Dr. Deborah A. Frank, Professor of Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine presented a lecture on Prenatal Drug Exposure: What Does the Science Tell Us?   She explores the social meaning of certain drugs and exposes some of the myths laden in the term "crack-addicted babies".  The entire lecture is about 15 minutes and would be especially useful in child welfare classes and clinics.  The video can be viewed at http://www.vimeo.com/3916613 (last visited April 6, 2009 bgf)
