Partner with Your Local Lend/UCEDD Program: Copy

You can also reach out to any UCEDD or LEND programs in your area, which are multidisciplinary disability study programs that often include medical professionals. You can find a map of all the LEND programs in the US at Some of these educational programs may be looking for parent mentors they can match with students, and other may be able to offer support or interns for your program. 

I know that in years past, LEND programs have provided student interns to help local Down syndrome organizations create comprehensive lists of medical professionals in the local area who might be involved with delivering a prenatal diagnosis, and I know other UCEDDs that have provided financial support for prenatal outreach programs when the program fell under their mission.

We also partner with the LEND program to match emerging docs and researchers with families to learn more.
