The INARF Annual Award Program has been an Association tradition for many years and enables INARF members to recognize the significant contributions and exceptional efforts of individuals and community partners committed to improving the lives of individuals with disabilities. This year the Annual Award Luncheon Program scheduled for March 18 was cancelled due to COVID-19.
The Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services is committed to working collaboratively with case managers and providers during this extraordinary time. We appreciate the hands-on and coordinated efforts and responses our case managers and providers have demonstrated. As part of this commitment, BDDS will be hosting a provider webinar on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. EDT. The webinar will include an overview of temporary policy changes related to COVID-19 and Appendix K, as well as updates and clarifications.
In partnership with the Indiana State Department of Health, the Division of Aging and Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services are pleased to share an upcoming webinar on infection control for assisted living and home-based residential services.
