September 21 – Pediatric Care – Ask the Doctor!
Specific guideline-directed care for children with Down syndrome is relatively new. Specialized DS Centers are available in some areas, but there are many parts of the world without easy access to these specialists. This webinar will provide an opportunity to ask questions about the care of your child (0-18 years old) with Down syndrome for less than the cost of an office visit copay!
Once you’ve registered, you may submit a question in advance or ask one in real-time, as time allows (anonymity will be protected). The answers to the questions will be intended for a general audience and are not intended to provide specific diagnoses or definitive treatments for your loved one with Down syndrome. Please seek specific medical advice from your doctor and medical team for specific guidance.
September’s presenter is:
Kishore Vellody, MD
Associate Professor of Pediatrics
Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, Diagnostic Referral Service
Medical Director, Down Syndrome Center of Western PA
President, National Down Syndrome Congress Board of Directors
