In this webinar, you will learn from the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress (MDSC), which has had a solid, successful First Call program for over ten years.

This session will share:

  • an overview of how the MDSC First Call Program is organized
  • the training for volunteers
  • suggestions for outreach in the medical community
  • success stories for support of new and expectant parents
  • clear steps to start or expand your First Call program

About your presenter:
