Tune in this Friday, December 6th @ 9AM for the next episode of our monthly Facebook LIVE series, “What is the link between Down syndrome and Alzheimer’s?”

This month, we’re joined by Ira Lott, MD, Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics and Neurology at UCI School of Medicine. Dr. Lott is a child neurologist at UCI and CHOC Children’s Hospital and Director of the UCI MIND Down Syndrome Program, which studies Alzheimer’s disease in individuals with Down syndrome. His research has been supported by the NIH, the Alzheimer’s Association, and the State of California, including the largest clinical research grant for Down syndrome in NIH history. Dr. Lott has received two national awards for his research and has been commended by the California State Senate for his work on behalf of individuals with intellectual disabilities.
