We would like to invite you to an upcoming series of webinars for healthcare providers on accessible healthcare for people with disabilities. While the webinars will focus on information for healthcare providers, the information will also be valuable for people with disabilities and those that support them. All are welcome to attend.
This series is part of the Rural Healthcare Access Project, an initiative funded by the PA Developmental Disabilities Council to improve healthcare access for people with disabilities in rural PA
