DSRTF and NDSS Host Special Down Syndrome Awareness Month Webinar


from the DSRTF and NDSS:
"We really are on the verge of a revolution," says Dr. Roger Reeves of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. As one of the preeminent figures in the field of Down syndrome cognition research, he's in a unique position to know. With almost 30 years of experience in the field, Dr. Reeves has studied DS since his postdoctoral days, when the condition was still believed to be too complex to treat. It's thanks to the sustained efforts of researchers and advocates like Dr. Reeves that we now understand that cognitive improvements for people with Down syndrome are not only possible, but within reach. Those efforts are showing exciting results. With recent advances, Dr. Reeves says, "the game has changed for people with Down syndrome."

Learn what that means for the future on Tuesday, October 16 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET when Dr. Reeves joins us for a webinar to discuss current topics in DS research and his own groundbreaking work.

This one-hour presentation is a special collaboration between the Down Syndrome Research and Treatment Foundation (DSRTF) and the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in celebration of Down Syndrome Awareness Month. 

Register now to attend  [LINK: ], then join us on the 16th and find out why the future looks brighter than ever for people with Down syndrome.

You can submit questions in advance to be answered as time permits. [LINK: question for Dr. Reeves ]  

We hope you'll join us on Tuesday 10/16/2012.
