The inaugural national Research & Medical Care Roundtable was held July 18, 2013, attracting top scientists and researchers focused on Down syndrome. The experts presented their work and answered questions for over 400 attendees, approximately 80 percent being self-advocates and family members, and 20 percent professionals. The Global Roundtable, held in connection with the National Down Syndrome Congress Convention in Denver, was a full day of cutting-edge research and best-practices medical care organized into five parts: an NIH Keynote and four panels focused on Medical Care, Prenatal Testing, Basic Research, and Down Syndrome & Alzheimer’s Disease.
