Fundació Catalana Síndrome de Down Abertis and the Abertis Foundation for their achievements in workplace integration
Abertis and its Foundation have garnered the accolade for their work in furthering the social and workplace integration of young people with Down's Syndrome and other disabilities in recent years.
Grifols has donated 150,000 euros to support the Foundation's research effort, designed to improve the quality of life of people with intellectual disability. One of the lines of research, in partnership with the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, in Barcelona, focuses on the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, which has a much higher prevalence in people with Down's syndrome.
Erik Nitsch, who takes part in our “Use Your Mornings” program and has previously won art competitions, designed the adult model. Gusti Rosemffet, illustrator and author of the book “Maliko y papá” came up with the illustration for the children’s t-shirt.
