Building Inclusive Programs to Serve Adults with Disabilities

July 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Register

Adults with disabilities in the U.S. face significant barriers to preventing ongoing health conditions and accessing health care services. One way to address these health disparities is through evidence-based programs, like Living Well with a Disability (LWD). LWD is a peer-led program that was created specifically for adults with disabilities with input from the national network of centers for independent living. Attend this webinar to learn more about the development, implementation, and successes of LWD. Helpful resources and strategies for ensuring evidence-based programs are accessible for all will also be featured.

Presenters:

  • Thomas Eagen, Graduate Research Fellow, National Council on Aging (Moderator)
  • Karl Cooper, American Association on Health and Disability
  • Meg  Ann Traci, University of Montana Rural Institute For Inclusive Communities
  • Tracy Boehm, University of Montana Rural Institute For Inclusive Communities
