Did you know? 

There are medical care guidelines specific to adults with Down syndrome.

Medical care guidelines are recommendations developed to assist physicians and other clinicians in the process of providing appropriate healthcare. They include guidance on what screening tests (such as checking blood sugar to screen for diabetes) should be performed and at what ages or intervals. There are medical care guidelines specific to the health needs of adults with Down syndrome. However, they have not been updated since 1999. The Global Down Syndrome Foundation and a team of medical experts have been working on updating these guidelines using a rigorous, evidence-based process. A webinar about this process will be held on Wednesday, October 21 at 5pm CT (4pm MT). There is no cost to attend the webinar. To register, please visit this link
