Event announcement: HHSC Listening Sessions on Disability Services

Oct 2 2019

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is hosting a series of Listening Sessions across Texas to learn how we can improve disability services as we make future plans. The sessions will engage discussion on services for a range of disabilities and anyone is welcome to participate. We encourage people with disabilities and their supporters, services/care providers, and community organizations to attend. HHSC staff will be on site to answer questions and refer people to appropriate contacts.

A list of the Listening Sessions is provided below and an invitation for the first session is attached for sharing. Unfortunately, we do not have details available for all of the sessions yet. I will provide them as they become available. A session is not being scheduled for the Austin area because organizations, advocates, and community members are being engaged in other ways in that region.

Please share this information with your members, partners, and constituencies as appropriate. Questions can be directed to Medical_and_Social_Services@hhsc.state.tx.us. I can also answer general questions.
