Millions of people who have disabilities rely on a system of government programs designed to help them supplement their income and meet the challenges of getting an education, finding employment, and maintaining good health. But the cost and complexity of the U.S. system present their own major challenges, both for policymakers who seek to meet rising needs with limited resources and for beneficiaries who experience a fragmented provision of services and poor health and economic outcomes. The Disability Research Consortium is building the evidence base on this issue to improve the national disability support system, improve the lives of people with disabilities, and reduce government spending in the long term.
Join the DRC for a free, two-day conference highlighting its latest research findings and their implications for the future of state and federal disability policies and programs. Also hear insights from representatives of federal agencies that administer programs for people with disabilities, including the Social Security Administration and the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, Education, and Veterans Affairs.
Registration is open until July 23 (or until filled). Space is limited so make sure you reserve your spot today. Click here to learn more about this event and to view an agenda: http://www.mathematica-mpr.com/events/drc-annual-meeting-august-2015.
