Light it Up Blue to Celebrate Autism Awareness Month

As part of Golisano Children’s Hospital’s capital campaign, we’re focused on enhancing programs and services in seven key areas, including our autism program. Thanks to our experienced clinicians and dedicated researchers, Golisano Children’s Hospital is proud to have one of the best autism programs in the  country.

On World Autism Awareness Day, Monday, April 2, Golisano Children’s Hospital invites you to tune into 13WHAM News at 5 p.m. to learn important information and the latest news about autism spectrum disorders. The timing for this call-in show couldn’t be better, since new findings released by the Centers of Disease Control revealed an increase in the prevalence of children with autism. During the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. 13WHAM News broadcast, our hospital’s autism experts will be available (585) 321-8787 to answer questions about autism.

Watch this video, which aired on PBS’s “McNeil Lehrer News Hour” with Dr. Susan Hyman, chief of Golisano Children’s Hospital’s Division of Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Pediatrics and chair of the Autism Subcommittee of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

We also invite you to shine a light on autism by wearing blue or turning on blue lights on April 2. Find out more about Light It Up Blue Day.

We’re driven to make the care we’re able to provide ever better, with the hope of improving family-centered care, advancing research and educating the doctors of tomorrow to better serve the children of today. Learn more about how you can help us make a difference in the lives of children in the U.S. coping with autism spectrum disorders.
