Overview

The Victorian Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Special Interest Group (VIC FASD SIG) was established in 2017 to provide an opportunity for professionals, families and researchers to connect and collaborate to build the capacity to prevent, diagnose, understand and respond to FASD in Victoria. Membership is open to anyone who lives or works in Victoria with an interest in FASD. This is not a research project per se, but the SIG has links to many projects through its membership.

We hold membership meetings every 2 months, with additional meetings called as required. We always welcome new members, please contact us below.
