Wear a cool t-shirt at a conference & get a free book

Sevenly Lettercase campaignMany of my readers will be traveling this week to Denver for this year’s conference for the National Down Syndrome Congress (NDSC). Here’s an opportunity to get a free book simply by looking cool at the conference.

A friend in my town attended the conference when it was in Atlanta several years ago. I asked why she attended since she was not that involved on the national level on Down syndrome issues. Her succinct answer gave a good reason to attend:

I just think it’s cool to be in a place where there a lot of people with Down syndrome.

At this year’s conference, resources featured on this site’s “Prenatal Resources” page will be available in the exhibit hall.

  • Hard copies of Diagnosis to Delivery will be available at the Woodbine House table–as I’ve said before, simply reading this book will give you insight into the journey an expectant mom travels after deciding to continue a pregnancy following a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis; 
  • Understanding a Down Syndrome Diagnosis and How to Deliver a Down Syndrome Diagnosis will be available at discounted rates at the Down Syndrome Guild of Kansas City’s (DSGKC) exhibit booth; and, 
  • If you just wear your Sevenly t-shirt, you will receive a free copy of Understanding a Down Syndrome Diagnosis!

I wish everyone safe travels and a wonderful conference of meeting up with old friends and making new ones.

I also hope you’ll check out this year’s film festival. Each of these films feature an actor or actors with Down syndrome. The annual coordinator, Gail Williamson, says it’s the best one, yet. Given that there are films from Brazil, Nigeria, and Finland, along with several from the United States, even if it’s not the “best,” it certainly is impressive.

If you are not planning to attend the NDSC conference and live in the Chicago-land area, I will be presenting at a conference this Thursday on prenatal testing and Down syndrome. The conference is at Trinity University in Deerfield, Illinois and is open and free to the public. If you are unable to attend, you can live-stream the Trinity University Conference via this link.

UPDATE: The National Center is also providing pass along cards for free to anyone who stops by the DSGKC exhibit booth. These can be shared with medical providers so they have an easy reminder of where to find medically-approved resources for their patients.

Disclosure: I am a member of the  National Center for Prenatal & Postnatal Down Syndrome Resources’ fundraising committee and raise funds for the Center; Diagnosis to Delivery, Understanding a Down Syndrome Diagnosis, and How to Deliver a Down Syndrome Diagnosis are all resources through the National Center.
