National COVID-19 Preparedness Briefing for Community Providers

Share this page
4:00pm-5:00pm EST

Like many of our members, ANCOR is concerned about COVID-19 (i.e., the coronavirus) and its potential impact on our friends, family members, colleagues and the people we support.

As part of ANCOR’s commitment to keeping you safe and informed, we are consulting with a range of partners and national leaders, including the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Developmental Medicine & Dentistry (AADMD). These leading experts and others assure us that there is no reason for panic, but remind us that just like with the spread of any infectious disease, preparation is your first line of defense.

For that reason, we have invited national experts to address ANCOR members during a National COVID-19 Preparedness Briefing for Community Providers on Wednesday, March 4 at 4 pm EST/1 pm PST. During this briefing, ANCOR leaders and national experts will discuss:

  • The latest guidance on COVID-19 from the CDC.
  • Steps you should take to protect yourself and your loved ones from the virus.
  • Things to consider as you assess the potential impact of COVID-19 on people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
  • What ANCOR and some of its members are doing in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Answers to YOUR questions.

Speakers during the National Briefing on COVID-19 Preparedness for Community Providers will include:

  • Dan Berland, National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services
  • Matt Holder, MD, American Academy of Developmental Medicine & Dentistry
  • Donna Martin, ANCOR
  • Shannon McCracken, ANCOR
  • Carrie McGraw, National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services
  • Barbara Merrill, ANCOR
  • Diane Moore, Developmental Disability Nurses Association

This event is free and open to all ANCOR members, and advanced registration is required. If you are interested in participating but unable to join for the live broadcast, please register anyway to receive the recording. Register today.
