First Annual Negev Classic Golf Tournament in Support of Autism Research
First Annual Negev Classic Golf Tournament in Support of Autism Research

Winnipeg - August 16, 2016

CABGU Manitoba Region is proud to announce that on August 16th, 2016 we will be holding our First Annual Negev Classic Golf Tournament in support of Autism Research being conducted at Ben-Gurion University.

Currently, one in every 68 children in Canada is diagnosed with autism, with similar numbers in Israel. These figures have skyrocketed since the 1980s, when only one in five thousand received this diagnosis. Autism is hence rapidly becoming the most prevalent developmental disorder in children worldwide. The diagnosis is based entirely on behavioral criteria, which include the existence of social difficulties and communication deficits. The disorder is often identified at the age of 2 or 3 in places where awareness is high, but may also easily remain undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for many years. At present, there are no objective biological measures that can aid clinicians in identifying autism.

To this end, Dr. Ilan Dinstein from the Department of Psychology and the Zlotowski Center for Neuroscience is establishing Israel's first neurophysiological autism lab at BGU.

The Negev Classic promises to be a day of fun, excitement and conversation at Glendale Golf & Country Club, an opportunity to get out and golf while supporting BGU's efforts to combat this disorder. There will be prizes for every golfer, special prizing for the winning foursome, and a silent auction full of amazing prizes to be won, all in support of the critical research being done at Ben-Gurion University.
