Training Options

We currently offer training for medical and genetics professionals and students on providing accurate, up-to-date, and balanced information following a diagnosis of Down syndrome. We have offered live and online presentations to genetic counseling students at Wayne State University, the University of Utah, the University of South Carolina at Columbia, the University of Texas in Houston, and LEND trainees at Georgia State University and Louisiana State University. If you are interested in scheduling a training, please contact us.

We are also currently developing mini online course to be offered for CEUs and/or CMEs through our program at the University of Kentucky. In the meantime, we are making available a video presentation we offer to classes.
