NDRI researcher joins live 'Role of Men in FASD' panel

NDRI researcher Nyanda McBride will be part of a special live panel examining the role of men in FASD.

Hosted by FASD Hub Australia, the ‘Role of Men in FASD’ online event will highlight that men play a vital role in FASD prevention, awareness and management, whether as partners supporting an alcohol-free pregnancy, or as fathers raising children with FASD, mentors to young people, or peers and role models.

The live panel event will feature the ‘lived experience’ of two WA fathers to children with FASD, who will share their ongoing challenges and what they have found helpful, as well as examining research into the role of men in FASD prevention, parenting for young children with additional needs, and better ways to support them.

NDRI Associate Professor Nyanda McBride, a researcher with nearly 20 years' experience as an intervention researcher in education, health promotion and drug education fields, will be joined on the panel by Telethon Kids Institute Senior Research Fellow Dr Vincent Mancini and Dr Michael Doyle, a Bardi Aboriginal man who is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Research Excellence in Indigenous Health and Alcohol at the University of Sydney.

Hosted by FASD Hub Australia Advisory Group chair Professor Elizabeth Elliott, the event will be held on Thursday 29 September, starting at 9am AWST.
