LIVE Web Conference:
The Abandonment of Down Syndrome Research

Thurs., Feb. 3, 7PM (EST)

Year after year, millions of federal dollars are diverted from DS to other health or disease research areas, making DS one of the least funded research programs at the National Institutes of Health. 

In fact, there are now more than 170 different research programs funded ahead of DS, eventhough DS has a larger impacted population and higher incidence rate.

This live web conference is a sobering look at why DS research has failed decade after decade to make breakthrough scientific discoveries that would vastly improve the quality of life and health of our loved ones with DS.

Take 60-minutes to learn the facts:  constant failure in DS research affects us all, and blocks the future each of us want for our children.  Learn more on how we can turn this disatrous trend around.  

This web conference allows you to participate from the privacy of your own home.  All you need is a computer, internet access and telephone. 

Space is limited. Registration required.

Instructions on how to connect to the web conference will be emailed to registered participants on Monday, January 31.
