AAPM&R Participates in the Interagency Committee on Disability Research

Apr 08, 2016

The Disability and Rehabilitation Research Coalition (DRRC), which AAPM&R is a member, was invited to participate in the Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR) convened working groups. The passage of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) set new requirements for the ICDR, defining the need for a comprehensive government wide strategic plan for disability, independent living, and rehabilitation research. DRRC, in partnership with other governmental and external experts in the field, will conduct a more detailed gap analysis related to rehabilitation research and the cross-cutting themes that have been identified to date.
