For 2019, the theme of our annual ADA celebration luncheon is “ADA: Advancing Disability-Friendly Health Care”. This is a theme that is understood throughout the people with disabilities community, yet unknown by most people who aren’t themselves living with a disability. This event will entertain and educate on the challenges related to accessing healthcare for people with disabilities. We’re excited to have a disability-specific speaker with experience in this area. So please join us this year to celebrate the Americans with Disabilities Act, enjoy the company of your friends at The Independence Center, and learn about an issue that is close to our hearts.
