It provides an opportunity to expand our understanding of the relationships between knowledge and research, and how this can apply to critical actions needed to address FASD prevention, intervention and research. For the past ten years, the conference has brought together people who are passionate about this area of work and have provided a stimulating environment for them to make new connections and partnerships.
