Status: Conference conducted March 17 - 18, 2003.
"Changing Concepts of Health and Disability" was conducted on March 17-18, 2003 at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda, Maryland. The RRTC collaborated with Glenn Fujiura from the and Thilo Kroll from the in sponsoring the conference. Assistance with hotel logistics and ensuring accessibility of hotel meeting space and rooms was provided by in Washington, DC.
Approximately 115 researchers, policy makers, trainers, people living with disabilities and their advocates convened on March 17th to hear panels of experts in the fields of research, training and policy as it relates to disability. Following each panel was a lively question and answer session. On March 18th, participants broke out into two research groups, two policy groups and one training group. Each group was charged with choosing three pertinent issues from the previous day's panels. For each issue, the groups recorded intended goals or outcomes, strategies for reaching these outcomes, and data needs required. This information was put into a presentation that was subsequently presented in the afternoon session. Check back for the results of the sessions.
The RRTC and its collaborating organizations are very pleased with the success of this event. We would like to thank everyone who helped to pull everything together, and the participants for bringing your expertise and ideas to our forum.
