Mercyhurst University hosts a showing of This Business of Autism, a documentary film about the economic and societal benefits of employing young adults with autism. The production team traveled to Erie last year to interview students and administrators of the Autism Initiative at Mercyhurst (AIM) and then to New York City to capture the team in action as they toured companies and conducted mock interviews. Mercyhurst President Michael T. Victor, AIM Director Brad McGarry, and several Mercyhurst students are featured in the film. This Business of Autism will be shown on Thursday, Oct. 18, at 6 p.m. in the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center. The film is free and open to the public and will be followed by a Q&A session with members of the film’s cast and crew. Learn more about the film at thisbusinessofautism.com.
