IACC Invites Public to Workshop on Autism-related Health Issues

September meeting and webcast will address need for greater research on and awareness of medical conditions associated with autism
August 20, 2014


The federal Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) invites the public to a workshop titled “Under-recognized Co-occurring Conditions in Autism Spectrum Disorder” on Sept. 23, 9 am to 5 pm ET. The meeting, which will be webcast, will take place at the National Institutes of Health, John Edward Porter Neuroscience Research Center, in Bethesda, Maryland.

The workshop will focus on a range of health conditions that commonly occur in individuals with autism but continue to be under-recognized by healthcare providers. Participants will discuss how to best support research and increased community and provider awareness of these conditions.

The meeting will be open to the public and pre-registration is recommended. Seating will be limited by room capacity, with expedited check-in for those who are pre-registered. Please visit the IACC website for registration information.
