According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 1 in 88 American children are identified with autism spectrum disorders. The increase in diagnosis over the past 40 years can only be partly explained by improved diagnosis and awareness. What are the causes of autism spectrum disorders? What can be done to better treat children diagnosed with autism? Join Dr. Lee Cox at this Your Health Lecture to learn more about autism and its effects on individuals, their families and our health care system.
Dr. Cox is professor and chair of the Department of Physiology at Michigan State University. His research interest is the study of neural plasticity, the brain’s ability to adapt to changes in inputs and an essential part of brain development and function. A goal of his research is to gain insight into pathological conditions such as epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease, as well as developmental brain disorders such as Fragile X syndrome and autism.

The CA CAN is one of 50 Local College Access Networks through-out Michigan. In each community, leaders in education, the nonprofit sector, business, government and philanthropy work together to design a local strategy – targeting particularly low-income students, first-generation students and students of color – to foster a college-going culture and increase the college readiness, participation and completion rates. Peggy Simpson (email@example.com ) is the network’s coordinator and works closely with CA CAN Leadership Team and CA High School.
As the leader in the state’s college access movement, MCAN’s mission is to increase Michigan’s college readiness, participation and completion rates, particularly among low-income, first-generation and students of color. Michigan has recently experienced a modest increase in our college attainment rate – from 35.7% of 25-to-64-year-olds possessing at least an associate’s degree, to 36.8%. However, Michigan’s rate still lags behind the national average of 38.7%. It is MCAN’s goal to increase Michigan’s postsecondary educational attainment rate to 60 percent by the year 2025. For more information, visit www.micollegeaccess.org.
There will be free pizza and refreshments and games for all ages.
Free parking in the visitor’s parking ramp on Kearsley and Chavez.

Baker College receives a bike grant and partners with Assenmacher and Carman-Ainsworth. Saturday’s bike fair was very successful. The community donated approximately 80 bikes.
