In Tune with Autism 4/10

April is Autism Awareness Month and The Autism Center at UMDNJ will present In Tune with Autism at MSU’s Alexander Kasser Theatre the evening of Monday, April 10, 2006. This very special event hosted by the School of the Arts, Office of Education and Community Outreach, will begin at 6:30 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres and a wine tasting hosted by Eric Asimov, chief wine critic for The New York Times followed at 8pm by a musical performance featuring Steven Sacco with The American Brass Quintet.

The Autism Center of New Jersey Medical School is a coalition of researchers, clinicians, parents, educators, and service providers who work together to eliminate the symptoms of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in current and future generations, and improve the quality of life of the growing number of persons affected by ASD. Through research, treatment, and outreach programs the center is building an agenda focused on tackling the challenge of ASD.

The Autism Center at UMDNJ is driven by sound, innovative science, and is supported and enhanced by community involvement. The Office of Education and Community Outreach is looking forward to future collaborations involving The New Jersey Arts in Health Initiative, a collaborative project examining the interrelationships between the arts and health in the State of New Jersey.
