The team at the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) has been closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation around Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) with great concern for our community. As an organization dedicated to supporting all individuals with Down syndrome, we are particularly worried about the impact this pandemic will have on our loved ones who already face significant health challenges. Your health and safety are our highest priority, and we are committed to doing what we can to keep everyone safe.
For this reason, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 NDSS Adult Summit scheduled for May 7-9 in Scottsdale, AZ. We are currently working on plans to create virtual opportunities for you to learn from our wonderful speakers. We will be in touch in the coming weeks with details about our virtual schedule and how to join the sessions. We will also communicate as soon as a new date for an in-person Adult Summit has been set.
