RTC on Community Living Events
Center Stakeholders Gather to Plan Knowledge Translation Activities and Products
The RTC on Community Living hosted a retreat for its research partners, Scientific and Consumer Advisory Panel, and IL experts on Sept. 15-16, 2014 in Houston, Texas.
The center’s research partners presented updates on the interventions which are now in progress. Then researchers, advisors and consulting IL experts worked together to devise strategies for translating this knowledge into useful products and activities that will enhance community living by people with disabilities.
In addition to our partners and advisors, representatives of the National Council on Independent Living, the Association of Programs for Rural Independent Living, and the University of Montana Rural Institute on Disabilities attended the event.
