The Sterling Clarren FASD Research Award has been named in honour of Dr. Sterling Clarren to recognize his pioneering contribution and leadership in the field of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). The award will be presented annually to an individual in recognition of a completed study that has made a substantial contribution to the FASD field in one of Canada FASD Research Network’s (CanFASD) member provinces/territories. Special consideration will be given to those applicants’ who focus on an area identified by CanFASD as a research priority and include a knowledge translation component or to early career investigators who are undertaking work in the field of FASD for the first time.
Claudette Bradshaw recently retired from the Canada FASD Research Network (CanFASD) Board of Directors and this award is to recognize her many years of service to the field of FASD, early education and homelessness. The recipient, individual, agency or organization, will have developed an innovative intervention that has made a substantial contribution to the FASD field in one of CanFASD’s member provinces/territories. We are looking for innovations that focus on transitioning youth with FASD to adult supports; this may include housing, employment, parenting, and/or substance use.
