Three more days left to celebrate!

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month!  Do yourself a favor and spend some time with a friend with Down Syndrome this weekend.

Congresswoman Cathy McMorris the lucky mom of a kid with Down Syndrome, is co-chair of the Congressional Down Syndrome Caucus.  Just this past Tuesday, they hosted a briefing on Down Syndrome research.  The event featured six leading researchers who discussed the unique biology of Down syndrome, the status of current research, and barriers to future research.  The panel also heard from two leaders of the Down syndrome community who discussed how today‚Äôs findings could improve their advocacy efforts.  You can watch most of the hearing here.
