2nd International Conference on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder: Research, Policy and Practice Around the World

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) has a profound impact on all aspects of society and individuals around the world.

Topics will include substance use in pregnancy, biomedical, clinical and diagnostic research, and the evaluation of intervention and prevention activities. The conference will share lessons learned in a way that will foster improved policy and practice, promote healthy communities and social inclusion, and local, national and international collaboration on FASD. The voices of affected children, youth and adults will be heard throughout the event.

The conference goal is to provide participants with the means to use research and practice to inform and shape policy.
