The FACE Research Network and Roundtable

FACE (Fetal Alcohol Canadian Expertise) is a network of nearly 200 researchers, program providers and other stakeholders, actively engaged in FASD prevention and intervention. At FACE Research Roundtables held each year on or about September 9th, members and guests continue the time-honored tradition of research collaboration -- presenting scientific findings for peer review, describing successful service models, and identifying next steps in the fight against FASD. Since 2000, Roundtable participants have been the first to: uncover new findings on alcohol's effects on the brain; determine the incidence of FASD in various regions and populations; quantify the direct medical and educational costs of FASD in Canada and social impact of FASD on an individual's life; develop new screening methods; highlight the role of fathers in the prevention of FASD; identify the service needs of children affected by FASD and develop award-winning programs to help pregnant women who use alcohol overcome their addiction.
