Northwest FASD research network created

EDMONTON — The Canada Northwest Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Partnership has created a network to promote research of FASD and to disseminate and share findings with stakeholders.

Fifteen experts from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, B.C., the Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut make up the board that will oversee the research network’s strategic direction. The expert includes medical researchers, experts in aboriginal health and social workers.

The Canada Northwest Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Partnership was created in 1998 and is an alliance of seven jurisdictions that work towards the development and promotion of an interprovincial/territorial approach to prevention, intervention, care and support of individuals affected by FASD. The partnership has been in place since 1998.
