The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is hosting a number of listening sessions across the country over the next few months to help inform future funding priorities and strategic direction. Stakeholders are invited to share their input in-person, via teleconference, or email. NIDILLR asks that attendees be prepared to answer the following questions:
- What issues (barriers) make it challenging for you to be an active member of your community?
- What improvements (name the top one or two) would make your daily life better?
- What has changed, for better or worse, in the last five years that has affected your ability to achieve your goals?
The three-hour meetings will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. local time on the following dates:
- October 28 in San Franscisco, CA
- November 1 in Chicago IL
- November 18 in Boston MA
- December 5 in Dallas TX
