2021 Autism CARES Grantee Meeting: Committing to Health Equity Across the Lifespan

Wednesday, July 21, 2021
2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. ET
Location: Zoom

Event Description

This virtual event is an opportunity for HRSA-funded CARES grantees (representing research, training, and state systems) to share information about activities within their respective networks, discuss emerging trends, and facilitate meaningful collaboration. This event includes both asynchronous and synchronous elements.

Call for Video Presentations and Program Updates
Deadline to Submit is May 24th

In addition to a robust agenda that includes panels and roundtable discussions, we are accepting proposals from Autism CARES grantees interested in sharing the impact of their work related to health equity across the lifespan.

Accepted proposals will submit a 10-minute, prerecorded video, and this video will be posted on a new Autism CARES Meeting website for other grantees to watch prior to the meeting on July 21st. Proposals are due by May 24th and will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Grantees also have the opportunity to share general updates from their program by submitting a shorter, 5-minute video. These videos will also be posted to the Autism CARES Meeting website. No proposal is needed to submit a programmatic update; however, please fill out the form above to receive detailed instructions from the planning team. Captioning and ASL will be provided by ITAC and SPHARC for all videos.

Registration is Now Open

This meeting is only open to individuals representing the network of current (and former) MCHB-funded Autism CARES training, research, and state systems change grant recipients, as well as representatives from relevant federal agencies.
