Purpose

This Twitter chat will engage the overall disability community in a conversation on what wellness means and encourage the sharing of helpful resources. Based on what is shared, AUCD's National Center on Disability in Public Health will create a brief on health education, policy and practice resources. Our goal is to make this brief available by the ADA Anniversary at the end of July.
Discussion Guests:

Cari Cho, @CornerstoneMoCo

Mark Crenshaw, @mccrenshaw
Director of Interdisciplinary Training at the Center for Leadership in Disability (UCEDD/LEND) at Georgia State University

Andy Imparato, @AndyAUCD

Chat Guidelines

  1. Questions will be posted to Twitter by AUCD. Each question will begin with an identifier such as Q1.
  2. Each answer should include two things: an identifier such as A1 so people know which question you're answering, and the chat hashtag #IDefineMyWellness so that all parts of the conversation can stick together.
  3. When you refresh your Twitter page, make sure it's set to "latest" so you see the latest tweets in the chat.
