The IMPACT Family

Aspiring doctors, therapists, educators, nurses, researchers, and volunteers— we even have a few engineers. We’re a diverse group, but it’s a shared passion to make an IMPACT, a desire to learn more, and a love of serving others and giving back, that brings us all together. Our philosophy of assuming competence in every individual with autism and our passion for the cause makes us more than just a student organization; we’re a family that's out to make a difference.
