Call for Proposals: 2024 Everyday Lives Conference Health Wellness & Safety Poster Symposium

The 2024 Everyday Lives Conference Steering Committee is inviting all Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) stakeholders to submit poster proposals for the conference poster symposium. The topic of the poster symposium will focus on Everyday Lives Recommendation Number Five – Promote Health Wellness, and Safety. Individuals with an intellectual or developmental disability/autism (IDD/A), families, caregivers, direct support professionals, providers, clinicians, and other professionals are encouraged to submit proposals. Have you developed an innovative model to encourage healthy lifestyle habits when supporting individuals with IDD/A? Are you a self-advocate who has developed a routine for healthy eating, exercise, and/or mental well-being? Then we want to hear from you!

The poster symposium will take place during the 2024 Everyday Lives Conference on January 10, 2024 at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey Pennsylvania. The selection committee will pick seven to ten posters to be featured at the symposium. Submissions are due by September 22, 2023 and you will be notified of your selection by October 13, 2023. Selected submissions will be granted free admission for two (2) to all three days of the 2024 Everyday Lives Conference, January 9 through 11, 2024. The Everyday Lives Conference will be held in-person only (no virtual or hybrid component).
