Board of Directors
The Global Down Syndrome Foundation benefits from a diverse, knowledgeable Board of Directors who are committed to the Foundation’s goal of improving the lives of people with Down syndrome through programming, clinical and translational research and medical care, and ultimately eradicating the medical and cognitive ill affects of Down syndrome.
Scientific & Medical Advisory Board
Basic science, including translational science, is a key focus of the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome. To this end, the Crnic Institute has a Scientific Advisory Board. The Scientific Advisory Board is responsible to assist in creating and implementing the Crnic Institute’s scientific plan aimed at eradicating the medical and cognitive ill affects associated with Down syndrome.
In addition to Global Down Syndrome Foundation Ambassadors who happen to have Down syndrome, the Foundation enlists the help of International Spokespeople – celebrities who are personally vested in improving the lives of people with Down syndrome. Using their status to advocate for research and medical care they help educate governments, educational organizations and society in order to affect legislative and social changes. The Foundation’s International Spokespeople strongly believe every person on this planet has something to offer and every person with Down syndrome should have the opportunity to fulfill his or her potential and to live an equitable and satisfying life.
