If you or your child has a professional diagnosis of autism, Maine Medical Center and Maine Behavioral Healthcare invites you to learn more about SPARK, a new online research study sponsored by the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative. The mission of SPARK is to speed up research and advance understanding of autism by creating the nation’s largest autism study.

Joining SPARK is simple – register online and provide a DNA sample via a saliva collection kit in the comfort of your own home. Register in person by contacting us at 207 661-7620, email sparknne@mmc.org, or visit www.SPARKforAutism.org/mainemedicalcenter.  Together, we can help spark a better future for all individuals and families affected by autism.
