We are happy to invite you to join us and our partners at the 2017 National Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Conference in Calgary, Alberta on October 24-27, 2017.

This important multi-disciplinary conference will focus on FASD and its impact on individuals, families, communities and society at large. It will feature a variety of keynote presentations, panel discussions and over 50 breakout sessions.

The event will take place at the Westin Calgary on Oct 24-27, 2017. It will include an optional evening event on the Tuesday night, two full days of conference Wednesday and Thursday and a final half day on Friday.
