We are pleased to announce, that after three years of hard work, GLOBAL and Denver Health have joined forces to organize a pilot clinic which aims to provide excellent medical care to adults with Down syndrome.

The clinic has recruited Down syndrome expert – Dr. Barry Martin, M.D. – to address medical health concerns and Nina Cruchon, LCSW, to address behavioral health concerns on Mondays at the Denver Health Federico F. Peña Southwest Family Health Center and Urgent Care.

During the pilot period, we have the opportunity to prove the need for an excellent quality medical care center specifically for adults with Down syndrome. If we are able to easily fill appointments, there is a high likelihood we could establish a “permanent” Down syndrome clinic for adults. So make your appointment today and help us ensure a healthier future for our adults!
