11th Annual Zoowalk for Autism Research
Save the Date! Join us on Saturday, October 3, 2015!
The Zoowalk for Autism Research is an annual walk held to raise funds for the Autism/Asperger's Research program at ASU. The walk is a family-oriented gathering that anyone can join, including children, adults, grandparents, students, corporate teams and more.
So gather your friends, family, and coworkers and enjoy a beautiful walk around the Phoenix Zoo while supporting our mission to find effective treatments for autism!
This year's Zoowalk will provide funding for several important studies including:
- National Autism Treatment Effectiveness Survey – this is a national survey of autism families to rate the relative effectiveness of all autism treatments (medical, nutrional, dietary, behavioral, education, etc.)
- Treating Gut Problems in Autism - this will be a 2nd larger study to follow up on our successful first study.
- Treating Mothers of Children with Autism – this study will screen for health problems in mothers of children with autism, and treat those who have abnormal biomarkers
- Autism Prevention Study - this will be the start of an 8-year study to follow 150 families from preconception to age 5 years.
Please join the Zoowalk and support this important research. 100% of the proceeds go directly to fund research at Arizona State University.
