The CanFASD Trainee program is a new initiative helping students and early career researchers across Canada become more engaged in and knowledgeable about FASD research and initiatives. Led by Dr. Kelly Harding, the trainees have had the opportunity to advance their skill sets and learn from the CanFASD Network.
Split across two webinar (May 27th and June 3rd), the eight trainees will now present on a research project that has recently been completed or is under way. This is a chance for you to learn what the next generation of Canadian FASD researchers are accomplishing, to hear new research findings, and to look forward to forthcoming study results.
May 27th presentations will feature Ella Huber, Sarah Moss, Chantel Ritter, and Devon and will be hosted by Dr. Kelly Harding. Register now.

Recently, Dr. Xiangyu Long and Dr. Catherine Lebel published new evidence on the impact that low levels of prenatal alcohol exposure have on children. They used MRI images and parental reports of behaviour to show that even “low” levels of prenatal alcohol exposure (i.e. an average of one drink per week) resulted in weaker brain connectivity and more problematic behaviour compared to children without alcohol exposure.
In this webinar, Drs. Lebel and Long will be presenting on their newly published research, which has big implications for policy and practices. This webinar is hosted in partnership with the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute. Register now.

This is a chance for you to learn what the next generation of Canadian FASD researchers are accomplishing, to hear new research findings, and to look forward to forthcoming study results.
