Friday at the HealthMeet National Meeting

Yesterday was a fascinating day, hearing from the five state Arcs who are implementng HealthMeet and doing some really incredible work and development.

Today we are talking more about some of the challenges and the data involved.  I am particularly excited about listening to Deb Spitalnik and Michael Knox from The Boggs Center.  They are two of my favourite people to listen to and never fail to entertain, engage, and educate me.

Be sure to learn more at www.thearc.org/healthmeet

Or, if you are in Greater Pittsburgh, New Jersey, North Carolina, Massachusetts, or San Francisco you should probably be getting in touch with your local Arc chapter to see what you can learn and how you can be involved.

Thursday at the HealthMeet Annual Meeting

Picture of a Cowbell with 'The Arc' Logo

I’m spending a couple of days in Washington, DC at the annual meeting of The Arc’s HealthMeet Project.  If you aren’t up to speed on what that is, please take a look at their website.  I always enjoy being in a room full of people doing new and exciting things as well as looking for and working on really practical ways to improve the health of people with intellectual disabilities.

The cowbell is an Arc thing to allow attendees at a meeting to recognise good things.  You’ve got to love something orange and noisy! And there’s always room for more cowbell!

You can also follow things by […]
