This month is Autism Awareness Month. Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a person's lifetime. It is part of a group of disorders known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Today, 1 in 150 individuals is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and is four times more likely to strike boys than girls. Autism impairs a person's ability to communicate and relate to others. It is also associated with rigid routines and repetitive behaviors, such as obsessively arranging objects or following very specific routines. Symptoms can range from very mild to quite severe.  HERE

2009 AIDS Walk Las Vegas


April 19, 2009


Aid for AIDS of Nevada has led the AIDS Walk for over eighteen years. Individual Walkers and Walk Team numbers have grown significantly, sponsorships by local businesses and organizations continue to increase, and public awareness rises with every walk. Today there is newfound hope in the fight against AIDS – but still no cure. Some people with HIV/AIDS are living longer thanks to new therapies. Tragically, the new treatments do not work for everyone, and HIV continues to spread at an alarming rate.  We will walk until that point in time, when AFAN is no longer effective, our services no longer needed and our purpose no longer essential to the solution.
