The Adult Down Syndrome Center of Western Pennsylvania has recently received grant funding through the Shadyside Hospital Foundation to implement nutrition services for a trial period. The Center serves adults with Down Syndrome and their families who have increased nutrition support needs due to higher risk for chronic disease and barriers to adequate care. Through the grant, a UPMC registered dietitian and a University of Pittsburgh dietetic intern have joined the Center to provide nutrition counseling and education. Overall, the aim of the program is to increase the health and wellness of patients through accessible, informed nutritional services.
