MUSC is answering the Autism Speaks' Light It Up Blue call. In honor of the event, employees are asked to wear blue April 2 to support World Autism Awareness Day.
In its third year, the campaign helps raise awareness about the growing public health concern of autism by engaging communities to light up iconic landmarks on April 2 in support. Pay attention to the university hospital's North Tower to see MUSC's support.
An estimated 1 in 110 children in the U.S. is on the autism spectrum — a 600 percent increase in the past two decades that is only partly explained by improved diagnosis.
