Medical In-Service Program | Down Syndrome Society of Kenya

Education for Healthcare Professionals

We are committed to continuing our medical in-service programs because we recognize that by doing so, we increase the chance new families will be referred to DSSK at a time when they most need our support. Without the cooperation of medical staff, we would find it much harder to reach those families in that vulnerable period when they first learn of their child’s diagnosis. With it, we can arrange for our trained parent support volunteers to visit new parents before they even leave the hospital. We let them know they need not struggle on their own.
