On Thursday, December 12, from 3:00-4:00 PM ET, please join us for a conference call and webinar on Recognizing and Addressing the Needs of AAPIs with Disabilities with the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living (ACL) and Asians and Pacific Islanders with Disabilities of California (APIDC).
Due to unique challenges, including service and cultural barriers such as stigma, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) with disabilities are likely to be underserved. Therefore, efforts to address the needs of AAPIs with disabilities and their families require a culturally focused approach.
Join Daphne Kwok, Chair of the President’s Advisory Commission on AAPIs; Sharon Lewis, Acting Principal Deputy Administrator of ACL, Department of Health and Human Services; and Jean Lin, Outreach Coordinator for APIDC, in an interactive session to discuss issues facing AAPIs with disabilities and resources for addressing the needs of AAPIs with disabilities and their families.
