Down Syndrome, Alzheimer's And Testing Advancements
Thursday, September 18, 2014
Earlier this year, advances were made in pre-natal testing for Down syndrome. That raised fears that more parents would choose not to to have a child with Down syndrome. It turns out that decision can also be impacted by the way the doctor delivers the news. We'll be talking about that and the recent news that there may be a genetic connection between Down syndrome and the onset of Alzheimer's later in life.
