ABLED & Orange Grove Center Lunch & Learn: National Council on Disability
Join ABLED ERG & the Orange Grove Center for an informative lunch & learn on the National Council on Disability. This lunch & learn is presented by Dr. Rick Rader.
Dr. Rick Rader, the Director of the Orange Grove Habilitation Center received a Presidential appointment to the NCD from the last administration and was reappointed by the current administration. He is the only physician assigned to the NCDs Health Committee and his knowledge and experience related to the healthcare of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities has been applied to the NCDs current and future projects.
Dr. Rader is happy to provide the background of his appointment to the NCD, how projects are decided and how the recommendations are provided to the President, Congress and related federal agencies and how ultimately this is used to enact legislation that impacts on the entire U.S. population.
