Study Title: ADULT HEALTH STUDY
A Collaborative study led by Drs. J. Weinberg, T. Oberlander, and C. Loock
WHAT ARE WE STUDYING?
We are studying the role of the immune system in adult health and its impact on activities of daily life in adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). We know that drinking in pregnancy can affect health, thinking, and behaviour in childhood, but we know very little about how it might affect adults. This makes it difficult for health care professionals to identify and help adults who have had alcohol exposure and need medical or social services. We hope that the information gained from this study will advance medical knowledge and help provide better care and support for adults with FASD.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Adults who have been diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and are between the ages of 22 and 50+
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
Approximately 4-6 hours (including breaks/lunch) at either the BC Women's Health Centre or the University of British Columbia (Point Grey Campus)
Complete questionnaires about your background, health, relationships, and school/work
Play some games on an iPad (to help us understand your memory, thinking, attention, planning, and organizing)
A small blood and saliva sample will be collected
A study doctor will do a brief physical exam (to take measurements of certain facial features and also measure your height/weight, body temperature, and blood pressure)
We will be providing monetary reimbursement for your time as well as snacks/lunch.
