The Down Syndrome Center at Emory is working with the NDSS to host several Research Awareness Weekends throughout the United States. We are excited to announce that the very first one will be here in Atlanta on April 18th in conjunction with DSAA! RSVP here by April 10, 2015.
The event will provide both clinical information and research updates to families while having research opportunities available as well.
