The Lycoming College Department of Education will welcome Kurt Kondrich to present “How Down Syndrome Lifted Me Up: A Family Journey focused on Abilities.” His presentation will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 14 from 7-8 p.m. in the Mary Lindsay Welch Honors Hall. This event is free and open to the public.
Kurt Kondrich helped craft The Down Syndrome Prenatal and Postnatal Education Act. This bill requires medical practitioners to give expectant or new parents information about Down syndrome when their child is diagnosed. Kondrich was inspired by his daughter, Chloe, who has Down syndrome. Chloe helped Governor Tom Corbett sign the bill, which went into effect on Oct. 1, this past summer.
