IACC releases July 19 meeting agenda
The meeting begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. It is held in Bethesda, Maryland, at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The meeting will be made available to the public. Attendees can watch the meeting in person or they can tune in through a webcast. This will give coverage of the IACC meeting as the leaders resolve national priorities for research and services in the autism field.
According to the requirements of the Autism CARES Act, the IACC is responsible for all of the research and service options available for autism, particularly under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The act states that the IACC must account for and address a variety of perspectives and ideas gathered from a public forum. This will make the autism research and services more practically applicable for U.S. residents who have autism concerns.
The meeting will be available on www.autismspeaks.org, where visitors can learn the latest updates about the organization’s strategic priorities. The IACC hopes to learn from the local U.S. autism community very soon, with the deadline approaching on July 29.
