This was an opportunity for stakeholders in the developmental services system to learn more about the COVID-19 Vaccination process from Dr. Jonathan Ballard, Chief Medical Officer of the NH Department of Health and Human Services and Dr. Elizabeth Talbot, Deputy State Epidemiologist for the NH DHHS.
We plan to schedule a follow up meeting with DHHS at a future date to help address more questions that were not answered during this initial presentation.
CSNI has been working closely with the Bureau of Developmental Services, the Department of Health and Human Services, The Area Agency system, Private Providers and elected officials to support people through the unprecedented times that we are faced with. We continue to monitor the needs of the individuals with disabilities that the agencies support along with their families, providers and other area agency challenges. We will continue to share resources as they become available and encourage you to stay connected to your area agency during these challenging times.
Easterseals, supported in part by CSNI in collaboration with the UNH Institute on Disability, has created a weekly program guide of creative ideas and instructions for skill-building activities to support client goals. They are uploaded below.
