Medical Partnership

DSAMT supports medical professionals and students with training and resources to ensure families receive accurate, up-to- date information and to facilitate a positive care experience for families. Importantly, we connect these professionals to parents of children and adults with Down syndrome, so that they better understand the parents' perspective and can better serve their patients.

The TN Department of Health has information for medical providers and parents with current information about Down syndrome. Information, reources, and Links are available along with advocacy groups across the state of Tennessee.
