From the CEO
United Cerebral Palsy’s 2021 Annual Meeting is today and tomorrow, May 17-18, noon to 3:30 p.m., ET.
While there’s nothing like a face-to-face exchange of ideas, challenges and success stories, we’re excited about the lineup for what we hope will be our last virtual version of our annual gathering. Register now. Attendance is free.
On Monday, May 17, noon to 1:30 p.m., UCP hosts some of the country’s top experts via Zoom for a panel titled,“The Future of Autonomous Vehicles and How This Revolutionary Technology Will Impact the Disability Community.”
Our second panel Monday is from 2 to 3:30 p.m., ET. It’s titled:”Research Developments and the Evidence for Early Diagnosis and Treatment for Children with Cerebral Palsy.”
On Tuesday, May 18, our gathering begins at noon with a private business meeting of UCP’s Members of the Corporation and closes out with a presentation by the Dr. Neil Lamb from 2 to 3:30 p.m., ET.
Dr. Lamb is an award-winning science communicator and president of educational outreach at HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Alabama. He will address the latest in COVID-19 vaccines, treatments, variants of the coronavirus, and the impact on the disabilities community. You can read more about Dr. Lamb here.
With the exception of the MOC meeting on Tuesday, all other segments of our Annual Meeting will be live-streamed free to the public.
