CHE Partners on why they value our work

Autism Working Group

CHE Autism is a working group of over 150 health professionals, scientists, and concerned individuals interested in exploring the connections between autism and environmental health, as well as discussing new paradigms in research and treatment.

CHE and Commonweal have had a strong interest in autism for many years. Commonweal co-hosted a series of conferences over the past decade exploring the new paradigm of autism research and treatment. Two of the co-hosts of these conferences, Dr. Martha Herbert and Dr. Robert Hendren served as Science Advisers to CHE Autism.

This working group provides a listserv for the purpose of sharing new research and policy ideas and discussion. Additionally the CHE Autism Working Group occasionally hosts teleconferences featuring leading researchers speaking to current autism and environmental health topics (links to past calls available below).

Michael Lerner, president of Commonweal, currently facilitates CHE Autism.
