Overview:

This 20th annual interdisciplinary conference offers a unique update for primary care and subspecialty health care professionals and others who care for children, youth, and adults with developmental disabilities and complex health care needs. This year’s conference will be live-virtual, employing a live stream webinar and various user-friendly interactive virtual platforms.  The live presentations will be recorded and made available for 30 days so you can review any content you might have missed. As in past pre-pandemic conferences, non-profit exhibitors will be available to provide resources to help you to deliver more informed care for patients and clients of all ages.

Presentations by our expert faculty should be of interest to pediatricians, family physicians, nurse clinicians, psychologists, and internists who are involved in the health care of individuals across the lifespan with developmental disabilities, as well as to those in other health-related disciplines including health policy, psychiatry, school health, social work, and case management services. While the conference is designed for health care professionals, we welcome families and individuals with developmental disabilities who wish to learn from the various presentations.

This activity is developed by a community planning and advisory committee made up of self-advocates and representatives from the following agencies: UCSF, Stanford University, The Arc San Francisco, Golden Gate Regional Center, East Bay Regional Center, State Council on Developmental Disabilities, Support for Families, WITH Foundation, and the California Department of Developmental Services.

LIVE STREAM MEETING
This course will be offered as a live interactive virtual conference.  Login instructions along with the digital syllabus will be shared with attendees a week before the meeting.  Included in your registration fee is access to the course recordings on demand (available within a week after the conference) for any sessions that you miss, available for up to 30 days post-course.
