63. Health & Down Syndrome w/Dr. Noemi Spinazzi
“Stay home, wash your hands, don’t touch your face….” you’ve heard it all before. But now you can hear from pediatrician Dr. Noemi Spinazzi, who specializes in Down Syndrome! She works at a children’s hospital in Oakland, CA and is the medical director of Charlie’s Clinic - a Down Syndrome specific health care center!
Today we’re asking her about all things health and Down Syndrome from special Covid-19 precautions, medical myths, speech, pneumonia, hearing, and more! Dr. Spinazzi also shares what it’s like to be a doctor in our Covid-19 world and how we can all support medical professionals, hint: stay home! (if possible). Speaking of whom, thank you so much to all of you out there who are working hard to keep everyone safe, including our extra at-risk kiddos with Down Syndrome. We see you and appreciate you so much!
Alright friends, grab your pens and paper (you'll want to take notes on this one) and enjoy!
