AutismUGA’s 2016 Executive Board:
Executive Director: Allison Fialkowski
I am a third year nutrition major with a pre-nursing intent. After studying autism for two years in the department of special education, I am now excited to move one floor down to study autism knowledge in the CAARE lab. Having worked with children with special needs in Ireland, I am also especially interested in cross cultural research. After graduating, I hope to go to nursing school to become a nurse practitioner with a focus on early intervention.
