It’s that time of year again – the 8th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD is coming up next week in Vancouver! CanFASD will be there and we are looking forward to a busy and fulfilling week. Here are some of the events we are looking forward to throughout the week.
CanFASD will once again have a booth in the main area of the exhibit space. We are going interactive with Facebook Live interviews and other fun ways to connect the FASD community. Stop by for the swag, sign up for the caregiver reception, and stay for the resources and conversations!
