12th Annual FACE Research Rountable

This event was held on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 t the Stanhope Beach Resort & Conference Centre, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

The 12th FACE Research Roundtable was organized by the Motherisk Program and sponsored by the Brewers Association of Canada.  

FACE (Fetal Alcohol Canadian Expertise) is a network of over 200 researchers, program providers and other stakeholders, actively engaged in FASD research, 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 Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (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 tools and methods; identify the service needs of children and families affected by FASD; and develop award-winning programs to help pregnant women who use alcohol overcome their addiction.
