Our colleagues at the Developmental Disabilities Nurses Association have shared this important work with us. Please take a moment to review the findings of this new report on disability and abuse at http://www.disabilityandabuse.org/survey/.
The AADMD would like to encourage the physician community to take part in the Physician Education in Developmental Disabilities (PEDD) continuing medical education curriculum. Please forward this opportunity to every physician you know who might be interested in learning more about their patients with IDD. It is completely free to participate and entirely online.
We would like to encourage our members to consider attending the upcoming Special Care Advocates in Dentistry (SAID) conference. It is sure to be a quality event. For more information please visit www.saiddent.org.
In 2009, the AADMD received a grant from the Walmart Foundation to develop the first nationally and internationally vetted residency and fellowship level curricula in the field of Developmental Medicine in the United States.
