News


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- This first day of April kicks off Autism Awareness month.

Clinical Neuropsychologist and Director of Hope Network's Center for Autism Dr. Mira Krishnan joined WZZM 13's Jennifer Pascua at the Blue Bridge in downtown Grand Rapids to talk about the Hope Network Bridge Walk for Autism, held Wednesday evening.

Lt. Governor Brian Calley, Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell, and Hope Network President & CEO Phil Weaver led the walk, which raises awareness of the autism spectrum and those affected by it. State and city leaders are the voice of their communities, Dr. Krishnan said, and through this platform, we can shine a larger light on autism and the work Hope Network is providing to alleviate as many challenges as possible that families face when treating autism.

Those who wish to support the cause can help families in need of funding for treatment by going to www.hopenetwork.org/donate and selecting Autism Scholarship Fund.
