World Down Syndrome Day

Happy World Down Syndrome Day from the Advocate Medical Group Adult Down Syndrome Center

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!


March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day. It is a global awareness day that has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. 3/21 was selected as the date because Down syndrome is caused by the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome. We are grateful to be part of the Down syndrome community and to celebrate this day! 

More information is available on the official World Down Syndrome Day website.
