This free presentation, part of our Brown Bag Learning lunch series, will focus on how genetic testing can help people with autism, such as helping guide medication use or better understanding co-occurring conditions and other potential health risks.  (Feel free to BYOL – bring your own lunch!).
We’ll be giving away a free ticket to AutFest Texas, our Autism Film Festival (happening 4/30/20 in Austin). We’ll give away one ticket to someone from our live “studio audience” and one ticket to a facebook commenter!
This will be broadcast on Facebook live. Our Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/ASOTX/
