Subject: Autism Speaks U UMD 1st Informational Meeting

Description:
Did you know...

     -Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the United
     States
     -Autism now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys
     -Autism costs the nation over $126 billion per year, but receives less
     than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood  
diseases.

Autism Speaks U UMD was established for the purpose of raising Autism
awareness to our campus and community, raising funds for Autism research,
and advocating for political reform for Autism policy issues pertaining to
diagnosis and treatment.

We will be discussing future events and opportunities to get involved at
our first meeting. Also, since we are a new organization, we still have
board member positions open! This is a great opportunity if you want some
leadership experience!

When: Wednesday, February 12th
