The Impact of Stigma on Autistic Health (4/11/2023)

Autistic people have an average life expectancy of age 36-54 years, with leading causes of death being premature cardiovascular disease and suicide. Extensive research shows that autistic people are dissatisfied with their healthcare, experience significant barriers in accessing care, and feel marginalized and stigmatized by the healthcare system.

Join Autistic physician Melissa Houser, M.D., Founder and Executive Director of All Brains Belong VT, to take a closer look at barriers to healthcare access, hidden contributors to stigma, and very simple things that healthcare providers and community allies can do to improve the health of autistic patients.
