AAHD WEBINARS AND EVENTS
Yesterday, we presented on Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ (CBPP) fall “Beyond the Basics” webinar series. In the webinar entitled “Best Practices When Assisting People with Disabilities Enroll in Health Coverage,” we addressed disability etiquette and basic accessibility considerations for anyone doing enrollment work, as well as provided an overview of questions a person with a disability needs to think about when considering their health care options in the marketplace. The slides for this webinar are available on the NDNRC website under “Webinars & Presentations.” For links to register for the other CBPP webinars this month and for links to archives of the previous webinars in the “Beyond the Basics” series, check out our news item. The video recording for our webinar will also be available soon and available on our website.
