After playing a part in the film “Heroes” and in the Catalan and Spanish tv show “Pulseras Rojas”, Down Lleida’s youngster Joan Sorribes goes one step further in his acting career by doubling an animated character with Down syndrome at Nickelodeon series “The Loud”.
A team from Barcelona’s CRG has started an investigation to analyze the effects of epigallocatechin gallate (substance contained in green tea) on the facial features and bones of people with Down syndrome. Their aim is to photograph and analyze the faces of 300 boys from 0 to 18 years.
On the occasion of the World Down Syndrome Day, Down Catalunya launches a manifesto and a video that defends the need for society to change its view regarding people with Down syndrome. This change of glance is also the central axis of this year’s Down España campaign.
