Michael Nelson of Lock Haven, PA, is more than just a patient at Geisinger's Autism & Developmental Medicine Institute, he is family. Michael has been seen by ADMI providers for more than 15 years. After Michael’s mother passed away, his father, Paul, decided he wanted to give back to the autism caretaker community by writing a series of books, Fishers Autism Trilogy, that tell stories from the perspective of autistic young adults.
 
Sharing these stories and having Michael by his side through it all kept Paul going through a difficult time in his life. “Michael was really my rock during that time,” he said. Paul attributes Michael’s calm nature to the friendly environment provided by Geisinger’s ADMI providers: “We always tried to keep Michael’s life secure,” he said, “and he always enjoys coming here, so I think that was a big help.”
 
A focused commitment to community is part of what makes Geisinger ADMI unique. Learn more here.
