National Disability Navigator Resource Collaborative Releases New Fact Sheets

Last week, new fact sheets were released for the National Disability Navigator Resource Collaborative (NDNRC).  These latest installments are part of a series that will help health care assistors with information they need to help specific populations within the disability community chose an appropriate health care plan.  Previously released fact sheets include information on Autism, Intellectual Disability, Multiple Sclerosis, Mental Illness and Veterans Affairs.  In addition, educational webinars will be offered on a variety of topics. The Arc is a participating organization with the NDNRC. For additional information visit the NDNRC website.

The National Disability Navigator Resource Collaborative (NDNRC) has released two more fact sheets to help navigators and other assistors better work with people with disabilities.   The most recent fact sheets address prescription drugs and working with disability organizations.   In addition to the series of fact sheets being produced by the collaborative, NDNRC also developed a disability guide.

The NDNRC is comprised of seven national disability organizations which represent unique cross-disability experiences.  The seven cross-disability organizations that are part of the collaborative include the American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD), the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF), the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS), The Arc, and United Spinal Association. The NDNRC is funded through a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
