Building relationships that make the difference

Medical Genetics Lecture

Directions was proud to present a medical genetics lecture at ECU again this year. Three people we support and two of their mothers talked about the lived experience of a genetic disorder, respectively Down syndrome, Prada-Willi syndrome and Hurler’s syndrome. It was a large group of nearly 70 students who were fascinated by the stories they heard. The people we support relished the opportunity to speak in public. They were open about their experiences and witty in their responses to questions, creating an exceptional lecture that will no doubt have a significant impact on the students and their future careers.
