Why the Eagles Are Committed to Autism Awareness, and How the Team Is Taking Action
“This is bigger than me, the Philadelphia Eagles or our city. We must collectively work together to shift from autism awareness to action. This will require bold research initiatives whose results can be shared both nationally and globally. It’s an ambitious endeavor, and it will take the very best scientific minds to make the transformational impact we seek.”
