AARTS program

The Autism Awareness, Research and Treatment Services (AARTS) program at Rush in Chicago is the regional partner for a national autism study called SPARK. The purpose of SPARK is to research and identify additional genetic links to autism spectrum disorder by collecting 50,000 DNA samples from individuals with autism and their families across the country. AARTS called on us to generate awareness and registrants for its DNA collection events throughout the Chicago area.
