Stanford Autism Conference Tomorrow

I’m finding myself caught somewhere in between Lyme and Autism worlds, but finding that so, so much overlaps.  They both interest me, and I continue to learn as much as I can about both.  I signed up for the 5th Annual Autism Spectrum Disorder Conference back in December, before we knew the Lyme diagnosis.  It’s a one day conference with different breakout sessions.  I don’t quite know what to expect, but I’ll report back after.
