In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly declared 2 April World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD). Events to commemorate this day are organized all around the world.

Last year, students of Benjamin Sheares College spearheaded the first celebration of WAAD in Singapore, bringing together various autism centres in Singapore to organize a one-day seminar for caregivers. The event was well received and even drew participants from outside Singapore! This year, we had the privilege of collaborating with 5 autism centres in Singapore, namely, Autism Association (Singapore), Autism Resource Centre (Singapore), Rainbow Centre, Shoulders Singapore and St. Andrew’s Autism Centre to organize this year’s activities for WAAD 2012.

My time at Duke-NUS so far has been extremely rewarding and satisfying. I came to Duke-NUS unsure of how diverse our class would be. I was concerned about adjusting to Singapore and coping with the stress of an intense medical program. However, I was pleasantly surprised right from orientation. Our class is an excellent mix of people from different spheres of education and culture. It has been an absolute pleasure to be a part of Duke-NUS thus far.
