Doctor Dow of the UCI Adult Primary Care Down Syndrome ClinicIn 2016, we were thrilled to announce the NEW Adult Down Syndrome Clinic created in alliance with UC Irvine Health. Dr. Emily Dow is the Chief Medical Officer of UC Irvine Family Health Centers (UCI FHC) in Santa Ana and Anaheim, which are federally qualified health centers in medically underserved areas of Orange County. She is also Professor and Acting Chair of the Department of Family Medicine at the UC Irvine School of Medicine. Dr. Dow has dedicated her career to caring for the socioeconomically disadvantaged populations in inner city and underserved urban areas. She started a clinic for adults with Down syndrome at the UCI FHC Santa Ana in March, 2016, with the purpose of providing high quality primary care with a focus on those transitioning from pediatric to adult care. She conducts health screening and disease prevention using the most current health care guidelines, and coordinated team-based care, in conjunction with case managers, social workers and other health professionals. There are specialist referrals, as needed, and involvement of families in educating and anticipating the needs of the adult with Down syndrome.
