An assistant professor of the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine has been named to a new committee headed by the federal Minister of Health.

Stelios Georgiades of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences and the Offord Centre for Child Studies is a member of the new Autism Spectrum Disorder Working Group announced this week.

The group brings together a broad range of stakeholders across Canada, including organizations that are on the front line in providing services and support to those living with autism and their families; health professionals dedicated to care and treatment; and researchers finding answers for the complex questions about autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

The group has been tasked with consulting stakeholders broadly to develop a plan for a Canadian autism partnership. Consultations will address topics such as information sharing and research, early detection, diagnosis and treatment, and ways to support Canadian families affected by ASD.
