Here's my weekly gathering of products, events, and stories of interest that have landed in my e-mail queue this week:
+ A newsletter from Children With Diabetes mentioned the "Store a Tooth. Find a Cure." program. A company that banks stem cells found in teeth will donate half of what you pay for the stem-cell storage to diabetes research, and will also donate $1 to research if you take a quiz on its site.
+ Another newsletter, this one from Kids With Food Allergies, announced the launch of a program to bring the information and support offered by KFA to families who are underserved and at risk. Access the newsletter online to learn more about this effort.
+ Seems every week brings news of another interesting-sounding book from Jessica Kingsley Publishers to my inbox. This week's is Getting into the Game: Sports Programs for Kids with Autism. On the JKP site, you can view the table of contents and read a blog post about the book. For more on getting kids with special needs in the game, read my articles on starting an inclusive sports program and adapting sports for inclusion.
