FASD Conference 2018

FASD Conference 2018

Hosted by the NHMRC FASD Research Australia Centre of Research Excellence the two-day conference (21 - 22 November 2018) saw leading international FASD researchers take the stage alongside health, justice and education sector professionals, as well as families, carers, and advocates for people with FASD.

Co-Chair of the conference Professor Bower, said the conference theme 'Our Science Our Stories' gave scientists and community members equal billing, highlighting the strong partnership that exists between researchers, practitioners and families in the FASD field.

The conference attracted over 370 participants to the venue in Perth, and we heard many positive comments and feedback on the range of speakers, including the family stories.
