If you or your child has a professional diagnosis of autism, OHSU (Oregon Health and Science University) and [Partner] invites you to learn more about SPARK, a new online research study sponsored by the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative. The mission of SPARK is clear: speed up research and advance understanding of autism by creating the nation’s largest autism study. Joining SPARK is simple – register online and provide a DNA sample via a saliva collection kit in the comfort of your own home. Register in person at OHSU by contacting us at SPARKohsu.edu, 503-974-OHSU (6478) or visiting www.SPARKforAutism.org/OHSU. Together, we can help spark a better future for all individuals and families affected by autism.
