We have been hearing from self-advocates that they want to be more in charge of their health – but how do we make that happen?

Join the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin from the comfort of your computer on October 3 for a discussion as Lisa Pugh, Executive Director of the Arc Wisconsin, and Leone Murphy, parent/APN/member of the National Task Group on IDD and dementia, will discuss how to talk about aging and dementia with your loved ones with Down syndrome. We will begin by covering the 10 warning signs and follow with personal anecdotes and suggestions for how to have difficult conversations about aging. Parents, caregivers, providers, and professionals are all welcome to attend!

When: Thursday, October 3 at 12pm Noon
