Welcome to the LuMind IDSC community. We are committed to connecting individuals with Down syndrome and their families to resources, expertise, education, and each other — online and in person.
“myDSC is an amazing resource to the Down syndrome community. Whether I’m searching for a practical hands-on guide or podcast for a particular health or education topic, the most recent research on Alzheimer’s disease and Down syndrome, or local clinical trial opportunities, I’m confident I can find support at myDSC. Beyond the vast resource library, the myDSC Q&A section with Dr. Chicoine is incredible. Having access to a highly regarded professional on a huge range of topics that we all likely consider is invaluable. Keep up the great work! ”

“I am an avid participant and supporter of research. I have been involved in studies since my early childhood and I continue to be engaged not only as a participant, but also as an advocate and hopefully a beneficiary of the findings and recommendations. I want to thank the researchers for caring about the issues that affect the lives of individuals with Down syndrome and encourage all individuals with Down syndrome and their families to engage and volunteer. I am not asking scientists to change me. I am comfortable with who I am. Participation in research is more about understanding our health risks and giving us a boost to lead fulfilling lives. Let us focus on our shared humanity despite our differences—and our diagnoses.”
