National Down Syndrome Congress, National Down Syndrome Society and Global Down Syndrome Foundation Collaborate on Prenatal Testing Issues
ATLANTA & NEW YORK & DENVER - (BUSINESS WIRE) - The National Down Syndrome Congress (NDSC), the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS), and the Global Down Syndrome Foundation (Global) announced a collaborative effort to create multiple educational resources and tools to address prenatal testing issues facing pregnant women as well as the Down syndrome community.
Earlier this month, the Global Down Syndrome Foundation and the National Down Syndrome Congress published the first Down Syndrome Prenatal Testing Pamphlet, an accurate, informative, easy-to-read resource for pregnant women and their families. The pamphlet is available in English and Spanish at www.downsyndrometest.org and is being distributed to pregnant women and to medical professionals who work with pregnant women. The creation of the pamphlet included input from medical professionals, parents, and survey results from over 200 people in the Down syndrome community.
"NDSS applauds the efforts of NDSC and Global in getting this pamphlet out to women and families. NDSS has a long history of working on prenatal testing issues, and the NDSS statement on prenatal testing guides our involvement on this critical issue for our community, along with our Prenatal Testing Committee, made up of providers with decades of experience on prenatal testing, self-advocates, parents, board members, and staff," said Jon Colman, President of NDSS.
