Dr Marga Hogenboom, author of the book ‘Living with Genetic Syndromes Associated with Intellectual Disability’, is to present a talk on Down Syndrome on Tuesday (January 25) based on her experience working at Camphill Medical Practice and Camphill School Aberdeen.
Entitled ‘The Joy of Down Syndrome’, the free talk – part of a series organised by the Friends of Camphill Medical Practice – will look at sharing life experiences.
One of the GPs at Camphill Medical Practice, Dr Hogenboom will be presenting an insight into sharing life with an individual who has Down Syndrome.
“People with Down Syndrome add such a unique quality to family life and society,” says Dr Hogenboom. “They bring real joy to those around them.”
Sponsored by the Friends of Camphill Medical Practice, the talk which starts at 7.30pm takes place in the Newton Dee Café, on Old Ferry Road, Bieldside, Aberdeen.
Camphill Medical Practice, located on the Murtle Campus of Camphill School Aberdeen in Bieldside, provides NHS primary care services to the local community along with the intensive professional care required by the children and adults in Camphill Aberdeen City and Shire communities in the Aberdeen area.
Camphill Medical Practice is a former winner of the Innovative Practice Award and the Quality Practice Award, both presented by the Royal College of General Practitioners.
