OAR Scholarship for Individuals with an Autism Spectrum Diagnosis

In 2008, the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) introduced the Schwallie Family Scholarship Program to support the post-secondary education of individuals with an autism spectrum diagnosis. To date, OAR has awarded a total of $260,500 to 84 students from across the country. Supported initially through gifts from the family of Ed Schwallie, a founding member of OAR’s board of directors, the scholarship program has also received generous support from the Lisa Higgins Hussman Foundation in each of the last four years.

As reported in last month’s issue of The OARacle (“OAR Research and Scholarship Programs Overview”), OAR has expanded its scholarship offerings to accommodate students with more severe autism diagnoses and is offering two types of named scholarships in 2013.

The scholarship program is intended for students with an autism spectrum diagnosis who will be pursuing undergraduate education at an accredited post-secondary institution. Qualifying students must be enrolled on a full-time basis (equivalent of six or more credit hours) during the 2013-2014 school year.

Glutathione and Your Health

safe_imageGlutathione consists of amino acids that are proteins which is critical to the body and immune system. It acts as an antioxidant for detoxifying, and enhancing the integrity of the immune system. It serves as the body’s ultimate defense against aging and disease. Glutathione is self manufactured and used by the body as an antioxidant that serves to protect cells, tissues, and organs. Glutathione is a building block for cell proteins and DNA construction and essentially rebuilding the immune system to fight against Autism, Neurodegenerative Diseases, Asthma, Cancer, Parkinson’s, Allergies, Alzheimer’s, MS, Diabetes, and Arthritis to name a few. Glutathione (GSH) is a small protein found in every cell of the body made up of glycine, glutamine, and cysteine of which is life essential.

GSH serves as a support for over thirty body functions:

  • optimal brain function
  • prevention of chronic illness
  • reduction of oxidative stress and free radicals
  • improved skin integrity
  • removal of toxins
  • protects and repairs DNA
  • reduction of inflammation

I have been using a product that provides the precursors required to support the synthesis of GSH in the body called ASIHW Essential Proteins.

Educating yourself on building your body at a cellular level is is vital for the quality of health you seek to live by. I invite you to learn more about GSH and remarkable GSH enhancers at www.asihwessentialproteins.com/
