About this Webinar:

The AUCD Emergency Preparedness SIG and the Community Education and Dissemination Council (CEDC) are hosting a network share of products, resources, programs, and services that UCEDDs have developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to support people with disabilities and disability-related organizations.

We invite UCEDDs across the network who would like to share their response efforts through a webinar to be broadcasted next month (May 7th). We envision this as a quick-paced, solution-targeted webinar in which each Center will have a maximum of 2 minutes to present and summarize their response action. After the webinar, we will disseminate these products, resources, and services, along with others posted as part of the chat.
