On Sept. 18 Access Independence hosted a community forum at Burroughs Community Center.
The group discussed many critical issues relating to issues of health, disability, and racial/ethnic minorities. We thank our participants and community partners for taking the time to engage in this conversation and value the input that has been shared.
This community forum is part of an ongoing initiative led by the Office of Minority Health specifically looking at minority disability populations in Connecticut and Rhode Island. Findings will be made available in a public report around March 2019.
If you were unable to attend the forum, and or would like to help continue this conversation:
Please consider sharing the links to the surveys below with your clients / patients / colleagues / networks. This is an anonymous survey that can be completed by anyone in the states of RI and CT over the age of 18.
We would greatly appreciate if you would consider circulating the links to the surveys widely across all methods of communication. If you would prefer hard copies of the survey mailed we are able to do so.
