Volunteer registry helps support families with autism

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Arkansas families affected by autism have their first chance to participate in a volunteer registry that will track how many people in the state have autism spectrum disorders with the debut of a new website, ArkansasAutismAlliance.org. Families will also find a host of autism resources compiled on the site, which is a collaboration between Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH), the Arkansas Children’s Hospital Research Institute (ACHRI) and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).

“This website will help families understand what’s happening with autism in Arkansas,” said Jill James, PhD, director of the Autism Metabolic Genomics Laboratory at ACHRI, a professor of Pediatrics in the UAMS College of Medicine, and an autism researcher who developed the site.

CAMDEN, Ark. - Winterfest returns to the Camden Public Library’s Amphitheatre for the 9th annual community celebration of winter and the Grand Opening of the Amphitheatre Ice Rink on Saturday, January 29, 2011, beginning at noon.

The free public ice rink is being constructed in the Camden Amphitheatre for the first time ever thanks to contribution and volunteer labor from numerous donors, contributors, and organizations.

The Winterfest committee collaborated with the Friends of the Amphitheatre Ice Rink for the construction of the rink. The rink is made up of a plastic liner and 18” boards around the perimeter, and is filled with 14,000 gallons of water. The work is being done by volunteers headed up by Michael Roy.
