How are you helping individuals with disabilities on their ‘Journey to the Top’? Share your expertise with individuals, families, health care professionals, social workers, teachers, policy makers and others by submitting an abstract to present at the first annual Mountain State Conference on Disabilities from April 14-15, 2020 in Canaan Valley.

The planning committee is interested in receiving abstracts pertaining to research, evaluation, evidence-based programs and policies pertaining to this year’s conference theme "Journey to the Top." Conference tracks include Transitions, Employment, Health & Wellness and Disability Rights.
