Webinar – What Assistive Technology means to Canadians: A conversation on improving equitable access to assistive technology

May 17, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Description

Description: The World Health Organization is proposing the creation of an International Assistive Technology (AT) Day. When it comes to equitable access to assistive devices, Canadians are faced with a patchwork of services and supports. Join us for a catalytic conversation on this important topic. Participants will learn about:

  • AT and its importance through shared experiences of people who use AT
  • Global initiatives and national research on enhancing AT access and policy
  • What organizations like AGE-WELL and March of Dimes Canada are doing in this sector

Join us for this catalytic conversation that aims to spark action and collaboration on enhancing equitable access to AT by sharing knowledge and experiences, co-creating solutions, and fostering a national vision and leadership in the space.
