If you or your child has a professional diagnosis of autism, Rush University Medical Center 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 Rush University Medical Center by contacting us at 312–563‑2765, emailing Norma_Calderon@rush.edu, or visiting www.sparkforautism.org/rush.

Together, we can help spark a better future for all individuals and families affected by autism.
