The sessions are meant for leaders in education, community based organizations and health care and will end with a brief discussion and Q&A.
The webinars are offered at 12 - 12:45 PM on June 8 and June 29. Both dates will cover the same content.

Developmental disabilities fellowship recruiting now
The University of Rochester’s Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) Program is a training program funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau of the Human Resources and Services Administration. LEND trains future leaders and advocates in the field of developmental disabilities, who value interdisciplinary, person-centered care and partnership. One of 52 programs in the U.S., and the only program serving upstate New York, UR LEND is known for its work in the areas of disability education, advocacy, and policy. The fellowship has recently expanded its focus to include specialty training for self- and family-advocates, who serve as leaders and help educate others about disability rights and policy decisions that affect the lives of people with disabilities.
Annually UR LEND trains 18 to 24 fellows within 13 disciplines including: advocacy, audiology, dentistry, education, medicine, nursing, nutrition, occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychology, public health, speech and language therapy, and social work.
The 2021-2022 LEND cohort will start in August.
