This exciting GLOBAL Webinar unveiled the much-anticipated GLOBAL Medical Care Guidelines for Adults with Down Syndrome© (GLOBAL Guideline) – the first evidence-based guidelines for our adults that took four years to finalize and publish. The webinar attracted nearly 450 participants from 42 states and 15 countries! They included Albania, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Columbia, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, The Netherlands, St. Maarten, UK, and Zambia.

The GLOBAL Guideline is of the highest quality and was published in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association, in October 2020. Our lead authors, who are at the forefront of caring for this adult population, presented on the GLOBAL Guideline recommendations and answered your insightful questions. The presentation with audio and nearly 50 questions and answers can be accessed by your GLOBAL Membership code. THANK YOU for supporting GLOBAL and our important work!
