The Canadian Association of Pediatric Health Centres is hosting a free webinar on International FASD Day, September 9th, 2015.

Award-winning journalist and author, Ann Dowsett Johnston will discuss dismantling stigma and how to address an alcogenic culture that blames and shames the FASD community.

Dr. Dorothy Badry and Dr. Deb Goodman will discuss a practical set of tools and resources that will be useful to healthcare practitioners and caregivers. The Caregiver Curriculum on FASD and the website www.fasdchildwelfare.ca were developed in response to an identified need for training on FASD that was accessible and available to caregivers supporting individuals with this lifelong disability on a day to day basis.

The webinar will be held on September 9th from 11:00am-12:30pm EST. Click here for more information and to register.
