Advocate Medical Group’s Adult Down Syndrome Center is one of the few primary care clinics in the world devoted to adolescents and adults with Down syndrome.

Believing that all individuals are worthy and deserving of compassionate health care and committed to enhancing the well-being of adolescents and adults with Down syndrome, the Center’s mission is to enhance their lives by providing comprehensive, holistic, community-based care and services using a team approach.

Recently, a close friend and loyal supporter of the Adult Down Syndrome Center agreed to donate $2.75 million if the Center could raise an equal amount in philanthropic support. Funds will help the Center expand services and resources, and share its findings to support adults with Down syndrome who do not have access to a clinic such as ours.

The At the Center of it all campaign will support three growth areas. Click below to learn more:

We invite you to partner with us to help accelerate our ability to transform care and reimagine health.

Our goal is to raise $5.5 million for the Center – to help people with Down syndrome reach their full potential. You can make a gift online or by check.

For more information, please contact Abby Leng, Development Manager, at 773-440-3819.
