First----hope you had a great Father’s Day and enjoyed your kid(s).
Now that the celebration is over………………I need your help.
While DSAIA offers two webinars each month (and they are great for leaders with important and timely leadership topics), I’d like to remind you of another webinar coming up presented by D.A.D.S. and Global Down Syndrome Foundation on research which is open to anyone….member/nonmember, group leader/parent, interested parties. It’s called “Understanding the Basics of Down Syndrome Research” and is scheduled for July 9th at 7:00 pm Eastern.
If you're undecided about the webinar, Here's a couple of things to consider: (OK--NOW comes the arm twisting) TODAY---think about the value your child brings in your life. Also, think about our responsibilities as dad. Knowing about every potential advantage for a child is part of OUR job and functionally fits in OUR bucket. Down syndrome research holds that advantage and it’s not just an abstract, long term, not in our lifetime vision. The chains ARE being moved.
Find out what this might mean for your child. Find out what this might mean for our movement and how Ds research might offer benefits beyond our community.
I know this is not a simple topic.
Look again at the title; Understanding the BASICS of Ds Research. The "3 Beer Rule" is the guiding idea in planning the webinar. The presentation MUST be comprehensible after 3 beers. (Not that I'm suggesting consumption DURING the presentation, but, it's a webinar......not Skype.)
