It seems the news is constantly full of reports about medical breakthroughs and advances in treatment of a number of conditions. Have you ever wondered if there is any research being done to improve the lives of people with Down syndrome? The answer is a resounding YES!

If you would like to find out more about current research, please take advantage of this exciting opportunity! Dr. Alberto Costa, physician and neuroscientist at Case Western Reserve, will be visiting Toledo on October 12th. Dr. Costa is one of the top researchers in Down syndrome in the world, and he is also the father of Tyche, age 21 years, who has Down syndrome. Dr. Costa will be giving an overview of research that is being done in the field of Down syndrome, with particular emphasis on his present clinical trial in adolescents and young adults.

Dr. Costa’s talk will take place on October 12th from 6:30-8:00pm at ProMedica Toledo Hospital Croxton Auditorium. Light refreshments will be provided.

If you want to read more about Dr. Costa and his daughter Tyche, you can access a New York Times article about him at:
