Mom's Poster of Autistic Daughter Wins Brain Research Awareness Contest

April 23, 2007


To raise awareness of the need for brain tissue, the Autism Tissue Program recently held a contest to solicit ideas for posters to help convey the message and importance of brain research. The editors of Autism Spectrum Quarterly were


asked to evaluate the submissions, and we are proud to announce that Teri Baker of Eugene, Ore., was the winner.

A story about Teri and her remarkable daughter Ragan was published in the November issue of ASQ (click here to read the story) and the poster was featured at Brain Awareness Week as a part of the Society for Neuroscience meeting in Atlanta, Ga.

We congratulate Teri and thank her for all her ongoing work on behalf of the Autism Tissue Program.
