Canadians will be rocking red shoes this September to celebrate FASD Awareness Month, and so will landmarks across Canada!
This award was created in honour of Dr. Sterling Clarren to recognize his contribution and leadership in the field of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). It celebrates the work of Canadian students or early career researchers whose research has made a substantial contribution to the field of FASD.
CanFASD had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Carolyn Bennett, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions and Associate Minister of Health, as well as members of her staff and senior staff from the Public Health Agency of Canada. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the need for a National FASD Strategy.
We are excited to announce a new member to our Network! Dr. Melissa Tremblay, a longstanding expert in the field of FASD, has accepted the position of CanFASD’s Indigenous Liaison.
