Engaging in Effective Medical Outreach September 19th


With the advances being made in prenatal testing, more and more women are finding out earlier than ever that their child has Down syndrome. Surveys show that too often parents do not receive the rest of the information about what a life with Down syndrome can be like and about available support resources. For those parents who have received information and support, they describe it as a lifeline. This presentation will provide attendees the information to confidently engage our local medical community to ensure parents receive accurate, up-to-date information and support. Come and be that lifeline to the next generation of parents raising a child with Down syndrome.
