DHRN Speaker Series / DHRN Video Project

Deadline: August 1, 2021

Eligibility Criteria:

The Background
At the DHRN’s 3rd Annual Conference and AGM Meeting,  disability & Technology: Qualities of Connection held on March 14th, 2008 we asked our members to take part in making plans for the future of the DHRN. This included making decisions about future directions, funding strategies and program development. Members were also asked to come prepared to share ideas about the development of a DHRN Speaker Series and a DHRN Video Project. We asked you how the DHRN could better facilitate research, who and how a speaker series might work best, and what exciting video project would assist your organization or community group to promote, train, or recruit researchers within the disability health research field. The results are in, and we wanted to share them with you! What’s more – we need YOU to join us in making these projects happen, when and where they should.
