Autism Grass Roots Tour Inspires Hope for Recovery

Enzymedica, Inc. announces continued sponsorship of 2009 Autism Grass Roots Tour and commits to further partnership with the nonprofit foundation Autism Hope Alliance Port Charlotte, Florida

— July 30, 2009: Enzymedica, Inc., a manufacturer of enzyme-focused supplements announced today their continued partnership with the nonprofit foundation, The Autism Hope Alliance (AHA), and their commitment to sponsor the 2009 Autism Grass Roots Tour (AGRT).

What began as a collaboration of Enzymedica and the Autism Treatment Center of America™ was later adopted as a key initiative of the Autism Hope Alliance. The Autism Grass Roots Tour has reached thousands of families across America, inspiring hope for progress and recovery. The Grass Roots Tour is championed by Kristin Selby Gonzalez,
Enzymedica’s Director of Autism Education, herself the mother of a son on the autism spectrum. Ms. Gonzalez has turned her son’s struggle for recovery into a nationwide crusade to help parents like her facing the diagnosis. Raun K. Kaufman who recovered from severe autism and went on to become the CEO of the Autism Treatment Center of America™ has been a keynote speaker on the 2009 Tour.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, The Autism Treatment Center of America™ and The Autism Hope Alliance have adjusted the roster of scheduled speakers for the remaining Autism Grass Roots Tour lectures in 2009. Please visit to view the calendar for specific event dates and featured speakers.

The tour will continue, headlined by Kristin Selby Gonzalez. The AGRT proposes diet modification, biomedical intervention and educational therapy as successful tools on the path to recovery.

Tom Bohager, Enzymedica’s CEO and AHA Board Chair shares, “We feel the urgency of mounting autism statistics and recognize that families will benefit from strategies which promote tangible results. The Tour’s message is one of hope for recovery and Enzymedica will continue to sponsor this exciting project through its partnership with the Autism Hope Alliance.” To learn more about the 2009 Autism Grass Roots Tour visit: or
