One of the major requests we get from members of our community is “where can I find a doctor/paediatrician/ (insert any number of professionals here) who understands Down syndrome?” At this time, we at the Manitoba Down Syndrome Society often can’t answer this question beyond our own individual knowledge or personal recommendations.
As such, we are hoping to find medical professionals who have knowledge and/or experience working with people with Down syndrome in order for us to put together a database, if you will, of professionals who can work with our community.
So we are putting out a call for doctors, therapists, experts, and other professionals who have this knowledge and wouldn’t mind be added to this potential database. We would use this database to provide connections for families seeking medical help for their family member with Down syndrome.
Please note that we recognize that medical professionals cannot always be open to taking new patients or that proper referrals may be required. And we would be certain to inform our members of this.
If you are a medical professional with experience and/or knowledge working with patients with Down syndrome, please consider contacting firstname.lastname@example.org with your information and the limitations or requirements for your service (ex: referrals required, specific ages you work with, etc).
Thank you in advance for considering building these connections with us for the betterment of our community.
