The Anna and John J. Sie Center for Down Syndrome at Children’s Hospital Colorado collaborates with many other associations and advocacy groups in an effort to promote understanding of Down syndrome and to explore advancements in treatment. We strive to serve as a local, national and international resource for families and primary care physicians by providing up-to-date information while also supporting parents who have received a diagnosis of Down syndrome.
Here are details on our partner organizations, support groups and other informational resources for families of children with Down syndrome.
Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome
In 2008, the Anna and John J. Sie Foundation became the founding donor of the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The Linda Crnic Institute is the first institute to concentrate on basic, clinical and developmental research, with the goal of maximizing state-of-the-art medical and developmental care for people with Down syndrome. An integral part of the Linda Crnic Institute is the Sie Center for Down Syndrome clinical program at Children's Colorado, which was Anna Sie's dream.
