The 35th Annual Conference at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA on March 23rd.

We’re proud to partner with the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress (MDSC) team to collaborate and sponsor their first research-focused event for families — Shaping the Future: The State of Down Syndrome Research Today.

This year, the community will gather to delve deep into the promising developments in Down syndrome research and the exciting potential it has for the future with session topics including:

innovative clinical trials and studies underway nationwide that have promise to make a difference in people’s lives

the latest research on sleep apnea, nutrition and obesity behavior, inclusive education, clinical care medical and neurodevelopmental conditions, speech and language pathology, and Alzheimer’s disease

information on the latest groundbreaking research into “silencing the extra chromosome.”

how to participate in Down syndrome-specific research studies, including the National Institute for Health’s DS Connect portal.

The offerings address the needs of people with Down syndrome from childhood through aging adult with useful information for self-advocates, siblings, grandparents, support providers, education and medical professionals, and researchers.
