Registration is open for the National Resource Center for Supported Decision-Making Symposium, “Taking Stock and Forging Ahead.”

This Symposium has the following goals:

  • To review the progress and achievements in implementing SDM as a primary decision-making support tool
  • To share what has been learned about the impact of SDM in the lives of real people
  • To examine the challenges of implementing SDM while also supporting health, safety, and well-being
  • To define what more is needed to ensure that progress in advancing the use of SDM across the life span continues

The Symposium’s presentations and facilitated discussions will address a wide range of SDM topics and reflect work done at the local, state, and national level. Participants will include national and local leaders, innovators, and practitioners, including people who use SDM and their families. We invite you to be part of this exciting learning exchange so that we can work together to ensure people with disabilities and older adults have access to the supports they want and need to shape and direct their own present and future.

Place: American University Washington College of Law - 4300 Nebraska Ave., NW

Registration: Registration is free, but required. Space is limited, so please register today by completing the REGISTRATION FORM and returning it to mwhitlatch@dcqualitytrust.org.
