30th Annual Developmental Disabilities Awareness Day 2018
DDAWNY held its 30th annual DD Day to showcase programs and services available to people with developmental disabilities and their families and caregivers. Parkview was proud to be a presenting sponsor for the event which included Keynote Speaker Lawrence Carter-Long and Awards Luncheon Emcee, Maryalice Demler from WGRZ. Lawrence Carter-Long is the first ever Director of Communications for the Disability Rights and Education Defense Fund and spearheads their Disability and Media Alliance Project.
The vendor hall was very busy, and several representatives from Parkview were on hand to answer any questions. We provided samples of our Adhere Pac packaging containing Skittles as a give away and to further educate the public on the packaging options available to promote medication compliance and independence.
The Developemental Disability Alliance of Western New York celebrated 30 years of providing life changing services and supports to individuals and their families this year. The conference was another huge success! We would like to thank all of those that particpated in making the 2018 DD Day truly memorable.
