Concorde Grand Prairie Honors Autism Awareness Month

Concorde's grand prairie students gather to raise autism awareness.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention autism affects over 2 million individuals in the U.S. and tens of millions worldwide.  To help raise awareness, April has been designated Autism Awareness Month.  Events are held nationwide to educate the public about early detection, daily challenges and available support.

To recognize Autism Awareness Month, Concorde Career College of Grand Prairie, TX participated in a campus wide “Light It Up Blue” Autism Balloon Rally on April 9th. During the rally, the campus asked that students, faculty & staff wear blue in recognition of Autism Awareness.

Students also participated in a blue balloon release during their morning, afternoon & evening class breaks. This event signified the awareness of the disorder that affects many worldwide.

James Harkins | Nursing Graduate

“What I liked about Concorde was that there was nothing flashy. They were very up front, very simple, answered all my questions. They were more concerned with my education than tuition.”

Robert Hitchcock | Nursing graduate

“After completion of the RN program I took my NCLEX as soon as I was able, and to my delight I was completely prepared. Now, when people ask, I’m proud to say I went to Concorde.”

Christine Mejia | Surgical Technology Graduate

“There was good simulation, real instruments and a lot of one-on-one instruction. I loved the lab, and I had a great instructor who is also a surgical technician.”
