Major funding for RISC Research Dr. Michelle Stewart

Congratulations to Dr. Michelle Stewart who has secured almost 1 million dollars in government funding to supoprt Indigenous people with FASD facing discrimination and overrepresentation in the justice system in Canada. This work will directly improve the lives of people living with this misunderstood cognitive disability. Stewart is also working on numerous projects using improvised art forms to support people with FASD in many settings, and we are incredibly impressed with her important research and interventions.
