Omega-3 Supplement Maker Teams Up with Leading Autism Foundation to Help Promote Healthy Choices for Autistic Children
Solana Beach, Calif. (February 12, 2014) – Premier supplements maker Coromega® has joined forces with Generation Rescue, the leading national organization that provides hope, information and immediate treatment assistance to families affected by autism spectrum disorders.
“We’ve long been committed to supporting families with children with autism make healthy lifestyle choices, so a partnership with Generation Rescue is in perfect alignment with our mission,” said Andrew Aussie, executive vice president and COO of Coromega. “In an effort to help families raising a child with ASD, our goal with our partnership with Generation Rescue is to help these families in need by participating in the grant program, donating Coromega Omega-3 products, raising awareness and providing funds that can help with the fight against autism.”
The Center for Disease Control announced that autism is the leading child disorder and affects more children than Cancer, Diabetes, Down syndrome and AIDS combined, yet receives less than 5 percent of research funding than most prevalent childhood disorders. Coromega’s partnership with Generation Rescue is intended to directly impact families faced with the challenges of diagnosis, treatment and care with useful information from Coromega on omega-3s and autism and donations of Coromega products.
Generation Rescue offers information on autism treatments, conferences, links to helpful articles, recommended physicians, and medical grants to families who cannot afford critical treatments such as doctor visits, lab testing and nutritional counseling.
