Let’s Celebrate National Trisomy Awareness Month!

Every March, organizations come together to bring awareness and support to the intellectual and developmental disability known as Trisomy. March is chosen as the Trisomy Awareness Month in the U.S. because it is the third month of the year, which correlates to the three copies of chromosomes that characterize the disorder. The most common Trisomies are Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome) and Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome).

There are many organizations that take the lead in spreading awareness about different kinds of Trisomy including the Down Syndrome Association of Central Kentucky and Down Syndrome of Louisville.

You can take part in spreading awareness and celebrating National Trisomy Awareness Month by using the hashtag #NationalTrisomyAwarenessMonth on social media. Learn more about National Trisomy Awareness Month here.
