The Health Care Access Research and Development Disabilities (H-CARDD) program is a research program whose primary goal is to enhance the overall health and well-being of people with developmental disabilities through improved health care policy and services.
This year, the H-CARDD program won the Paula Goering Collaborative Research and Knowledge Translation Award. This bi-annual award is sponsored by University of Toronto’s Department of Psychiatry and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Foundation. Join this webinar and learn about the program’s achievements in collaboration!
The webinar will focus on:

  • Mental and physical health and the health care disparities faced by Ontario’s adults with developmental disabilities;
  • The impact of bringing scientists, policymakers and community stakeholders together to develop and carry out mental health research; and
  • Lessons learned for successfully integrating knowledge translation in mental health and addictions research.
