SELF-ADVOCATES Introducing the speakers
ABOUT The Up of Down: An Insight Into The World of Down Syndrome
In 2007 Alexander's Angels founded The Up of Down: An Insight Into The World Of Down Syndrome. It typically consists of a panel of experts in various fields to acquaint the community with different aspects of Down syndrome. Symposiums have been hosted by area colleges, high schools, and corporations. Among the panelists there is always at least one self-advocate.
In 2019 the symposium turned into a full-fledged conference with the support of NYU Winthrop Hospital. In keeping with our tradition, self-advocates introduced the speakers.
We look forward, once again, to present this very informative program and invite everyone to join us. Space is limited so, please, register early.
