April is Autism Awareness month

The prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder has received much attention lately. Autism Speaks is an organization dedicated to increasing awareness about Autism and increase its dedicated research funds. One means of doing so is through the development of Autism Speaks college chapters, and we will have such an organization starting in the Fall. If you would like to learn more about this organization, please attend the following meeting:
