On April 1st, 2020, Emily Wolinsky, President of NMD United, presented to the Texas Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities about COVID-19 considerations for individuals with disabilities. 

 

"Community preparedness planning and response for COVID-19 should include older adults and people with disabilities, as well as the organizations that support them. The majority of people with disabilities live in the community, and many depend on receiving services and supports in their home in order to maintain their health and independence. This webinar will give an overview of how best to include people with disabilities in emergency preparedness, as well as provide information on resources for people in the community."
