[Source: Arizona Capital Times] – His name is synonymous with the cutting edge medical research performed at the Banner Sun Health Research Institute.

But what many in the Northwest Valley may not know is Dr. Joe Rogers, director and senior scientist with the Roberts Center for Alzheimer’s Research at Banner Sun Health Research Institute in Sun City, and his wife, Mimi, are the parents of a 23-year-old daughter named Dylan who has Down syndrome.

And because they recognized the need for more services for special needs young adults, Mimi founded a nonprofit organization, One Step Beyond, which is geared to helping others like Dylan develop life skills, vocational training, recreational activities and supportive residences.
