(PRWEB) July 15, 2014
Robbie Henderson from Brentwood, CA and Paul Hislip from Cranford, NJ have both dealt with struggles in their lives. After years of educational services and supports they both are on their way to college. And to aid them on this path they are being awarded the spring 2014 Making a Difference for Autism Scholarship from our group, KFM Making a Difference, a NJ non-profit organization.
We were excited to select these two outstanding young men, says Kerry Magro, founder and CEO of KFM Making a Difference. We keep getting more applicants for our scholarship every year. This makes our award decision tougher. But we are very happy we could choose these two individuals. They really stood out to us as deserving recognition for their hard work.
Paul, who will be attending Rutgers University this fall, said on winning the award, "I am ecstatic to learn that I have won the scholarship! Ever since I first learned about Kerry Magro, I admired him for how far he had come despite all his struggles, and that he had raised so much awareness for all those with Autism. I found it very inspiring. Robbie who is currently attending Sonoma University followed by saying, Wow. Im speechless. I am honored to be a recipient of this scholarship. Id like to thank everyone who has been an influence in my life. They have all inspired me to become the person I am today.
In the fall 2012, KFM Making a Difference launched its scholarship program and today, with Robbie and Pauls win, has given out 7 scholarships nationwide, helping 7 autistic adults to go to college.
Kerry Magro (age 26), who started KFM Making a Difference in 2009, is an adult on the autism spectrum who speaks nationally regarding autism issues. Kerry hopes in the next few years to have the all the scholarship winners collaborate on a book about their experiences as young adults on the autism spectrum.
Today, according to the Center for Disease Control, 1 in 68 children will be diagnosed with autism while more than 500,000 young individuals with autism will reach adulthood within the next decade.
KFM Making a Difference will now be looking ahead to its fall 2014 scholarship application period, anticipating award of scholarships to additional talented autistic adults from the community. The deadline for this scholarship will be Monday, December 1st at Midnight U.S Eastern Standard Time.

South Burlington, VT (PRWEB) July 10, 2014
The numbers dont lie. Thyroid conditions are common, but many people are undiagnosed, misdiagnosed or even untreated. According to the National Women's Health Information Center, approximately one in 20 Americans have a thyroid problem and dont even know about it.
In looking at the prevalence of thyroid conditions in our country, more than 20 million individuals are affected and one in eight women are likely to develop a thyroid condition in their lifetime.
For those who have been diagnosed with a thyroid disorder, treating the condition is often frustrating with common symptoms ranging from fatigue to weight gain, hair loss, anxiety, low libido and depression. Many sufferers are at a loss when the medication doesnt work, the TDH lab test shows normal and they still feel awful.
South Burlington chiropractic neurologist Dr. Aubry Tager will deliver a workshop on thyroid recovery on July 16 at 7 PM at the Get Healthy Vermont medical clinic, 368 Dorset Street Suite 3, South Burlington, Vermont, 05403 across from Green Mountain Suites.
About the Workshop
Topics covered will include the patterns to thyroid problems, the role of blood sugar, adrenal glands and gut in achieving thyroid health, the controversy about common iodine supplements and the link to auto-immune conditions.
