Down Syndrome Cognition Research: A Dad's Perspective

  • Thu, March 09, 2017
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (EST)
  • GoToWebinar

In this webinar Mike Mannor will talk about why he is so excited about Down syndrome cognition research from a parent's perspective. Mike will talk about what types of research are currently being pursued, where research has shown the most potential, and highlight potential directions for the future. As a father of five and a Down syndrome dad, he will also share his personal experience of getting involved - first through his local affiliate organization and then in directly supporting research - and offer suggestions on how others can find ways to support research. In Mike's case, his excitement about the possibility of improving opportunities and independence for people with Down syndrome led him to rally a few other Down syndrome dads to start a fundraiser to support research and then to join the board of the LuMind RDS Foundation to help promote research further.

I continue to be impressed with the depth of the board/professional workshops offered.
