Call for Abstracts--The 8th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD): Review, Respond and Relate – Integrating Research, Policy and Practice Around the World

Deadline September 12, 2017

Although there have been thousands of published articles in FASD in general, there has been limited research specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD or on individuals across the lifespan. As those individuals diagnosed with FASD continue to age, the “need to know” across a broad spectrum of areas is becoming critically important for identifying clinically relevant research questions and directions.

This interactive 2018 conference will provide an opportunity to be at the forefront of addressing these issues. We will welcome a diverse group of professionals, researchers, students, families and individuals with FASD.
