The UW Autism Center's 4th Annual Open House was a WONDERFUL event! This years’ theme, Family-Powered Research and Care, proved to be so meaningful. We reflected on how the advances we have seen over the last 20 years in autism research, society, and clinical services have been absolutely powered by families. It has been in partnership with families that the UWAC has had the honor of contributing to this amazing two decades of progress and change. So glad to see everyone! We hope you learned, connected, and were inspired. #UW #UWAC #autism

We thank the Shevitz family and all of the generous people who joined them in this event! #run2pieces #autism
