Thank you delegates, for your participation at the 16th annual FACE meeting in Ottawa!

FACE 2015 delegates represented an impressive concentration of Canadian FASD expertise and leadership.

Clinicians, policy analysts and parents got the chance to hear about basic research in progress, while basic researchers had the opportunity to appreciate the challenge and urgent need for clinical solutions.

This annual open forum for researchers and non-researchers alike, is helping to grow the base of informed and passionate advocates for continued fetal alcohol research.

See you in 2016.

FACE (Fetal Alcohol Canadian Expertise) was established in 2000 to promote open discussion and collaboration in all areas of medical and social science research related to the effects of alcohol use during pregnancy and lactation. Today the FACE Network includes researchers, clinicians, front-line workers, government and industry representatives, policy-makers and other stakeholders from across Canada.
