Prior to World Down Syndrome Day, Paul Daugherty joins us to talk about his daughter & his new book

Mar 16, 2015

  Jillian Daugherty was born with Down syndrome. Her father, Paul Daugherty, long-time sports columnist for The Cincinnati Enquirer, has just published a book about Jillian and their family. In “An Uncomplicated Life: A Father's Memoir of His Exceptional Daughter,” he tells stories about Jillian’'s challenges and triumphs, boundless capacity for joy, and what we can all learn from her approach to life.

Approximately 400,000 Americans have Down syndrome, and about 6,000 babies with Down syndrome are born in the United States each year. Paul Daugherty joins us to share his family'’s experiences and discuss Down syndrome, along with Krissy Vinson, volunteer and communications coordinator with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati, and Jennifer Bekins, a speech-language pathologist with the Thomas Center for Down Syndrome Services at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

Paul Daugherty will be holding a book signing at Joseph Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Commons Tuesday, March 17 at 7:00 pm. For more information, click here.
