Looking for Research Participants who Have Lived in Nursing Homes
TIRR Memorial Hermann and University of Illinois at Chicago are conducting a study with people with disabilities to identify and address participation disparities among people with disabilities.
Currently, we are collaborating with seven Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Centers across the nation to learn about participation disparities experienced by people with disabilities who have moved out of nursing homes.
REACH of Fort Worth staff can certify people with disabilities as eligible to use the
