Happy World Down-Syndrome Day!

Celebrating DIVERSITY

Down Syndrome International (DSI) has officially earmarked 21 March as World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD). The date was chosen to signify the uniqueness of Down Syndrome in the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome and is used synonymously with Down Syndrome.

This year the theme for 21 March 2007 is "Celebrating Diversity", to continue creating awareness about Down Syndrome and promote acceptance of diversity.
