Geauga Economic Leadership's November Breakfast Features

DDC Clinic - A Local Community Clinic with Global Impact

Twenty years ago in Geauga County five Amish families gathered around a kitchen table to discuss ways to find help for their children – children with suspected but unnamed, undiagnosed, and often devastating rare genetic disorders. Many of these children were born healthy, but after a few months suffered significant developmental disabilities.

At the table that evening, an Amish hat was passed around and $50 was raised - monies used to mail letters to share a vision for a clinic that one day might help the world’s special children grow-up to live healthy, happy and productive lives. The seeds were planted and a most unique collaboration of the Amish and non-Amish communities germinated.

Now twenty years later, DDC Clinic – Center for Special Needs Children is diagnosing, researching and providing highly personalized medical treatments for children affected by hundreds of rare disorders.

Join us at the November GEL Breakfast to learn how DDC Clinic’s local community commitment has truly global impacts. We invite you to discover how a unique collaboration with the Geauga Amish community is changing medicine for all of us!

Program is free to attend and open to all.

Geauga Economic Leadership (G.E.L.) Breakfasts are a collaborative partnership between Kent State University at Geauga and Geauga Growth Partnership. The breakfast is a dynamic opportunity to bring business and industry leaders together with our community to network, learn, and collaborate.
