The Adult Down Syndrome Clinic in suburban Chicago is known world-wide for its experience and expertise in providing health care to people with Down syndrome since 1992. Its clinicians, Drs Brian Chicoine and Dennis McGuire are the authors of the well known and highly regarded books, Mental Wellness in Adults with Down Syndrome (2006) and The Guide to Good Health (2010). Both of the books are available to be borrowed by Down Syndrome NSW members from our library (reopening from Monday 10th January).
Via a community Facebook page, the clinic also provides information on specific topics and health concerns, in small bites. The latest posting is on 'calcium and osteoporosis' includes some suggestions for dietary sources of calcium, and is available here.
