Nutrition and Exercise for individuals with Down syndrome: Moving from what we know to what we should.
Date: Thursday May 9th
Time: 6pm - Dinner

Presentation - Room 230
Childcare - Room 244
Childcare and dinner provided.
Dr. Judy Kim from the Baylor Transition Clinic will be discussing common nutrition/weight issues that are commonly seen in people with Down syndrome, what are general nutritional and exercise recommendations for people with Ds, and brainstorm ideas on how to live out daily healthy habits.
My goal is for this to be interactive – I’ll share some of the medical information we know about diet/weight/nutrition/exercise … but I would also love to better understand the challenges that families/individuals face in carrying out these habits.
