Disparities, Perceptions and Misconceptions: Putting PEOPLE Before their Diagnoses
Q&A from 5.6.20 Webinar
In this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must ensure that people with IDD are seen as people, first. Decisions like who gets an intensive care bed, an organ transplant or a cancer screening are being made every day. While the reasons are multifactorial, helping healthcare providers and the population at large see the human side of people with IDD can help level the playing field. This webinar will highlight health disparities and offer action steps for supporters that will help change common misconceptions about people with IDD.
This webinar is jointly hosted by AAIDD and Heath Risk Screening, Inc.
