Mile High Down Syndrome Association to become Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association, 32 Year Old Organization Offers Services to New Constituents 
DENVER /PRNewswire/ -- Mile High Down Syndrome Association announced the rebranding of the organization to Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association. The name change reflects the evolving role the organization has played in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain area in the past few years.
"Our new name accurately positions our organization to serve the Down syndrome community with an expanded geographic reach, " explains Mac Macsovits, executive director of Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association. "We have served the community for over 32 years and we are excited about the role we will take in facilitating our programs and services to constituents outside Denver and Colorado, including Fort Collins, Grand Junction, Montrose, as well as eastern Utah and Wyoming, " added Macsovits.
For more than three decades, the Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association has been serving Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region, providing support to 8,000 expectant parents, family members, medical professionals, therapists, and caregivers of children and adults with Down syndrome.  The Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association coordinates new parent visits, hosts community support groups, works with school districts throughout Colorado (representing over 300,000 students) and offers educational programs to parents, self-advocates, the medical community, and caregivers.
Most recently, Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association added the Higher Visions for Education program (formerly known as ALIVE! class), a life skills program specifically designated to adults with Down syndrome. The class is currently adding cooking and art education components and is planning to increase its existing number of students.
