Interest Group (DisAbility SPIG), were excited to award eight scholarships to support AUCD Network Trainees to attend the 2006 APHA Annual Meeting in Boston, MA. The DisAbility Forum hosted workshop sessions on critical topics such as disability surveillance, health care, health promotion, health policy and practice, assistive technology, and accessibility. This was a great opportunity for the education and training of the next generation of leaders in public health and disability research.
