Webinar Descriptions:

The APHA Disability Section will be conducting their first webinar in this series! The purpose of these webinars is to promote learning and to provide an opportunity for students and Disability Section members to share their research throughout the year! 

This webinar will focus on Health Promotion for Adults with Disabilities. The moderator of this webinar is Alicia Dixion-Ibarra, PhD, MPH.

Destiny Singleton, is a doctoral student in the School Psychology Program at the University of South Florida. Her primary interests are in pediatric school psychology, as well as behavioral trainings for parents. She am currently working with Dr. Jennifer Marshall and Dr. Christopher Vatland on a project that focuses on developing educational modules for parents with intellectual disabilities to increase their knowledge on health, safety, and maintaining a routine for their child. With this project they hope to see an increase in health outcomes for parents, as well as for their child. This group also hopes that agencies who may work with parents with intellectual disabilities are able to adapt their current modules so they can be more effective for this population of parents.
