Panel discussion: "Realizing the Vision of Deinstitutionalization: What Needs to be Done"

Over the past four decades, there has been a tremendous change in how people with disabilities are cared for in Massachusetts and throughout the country, as individuals have moved from poorly funded, overcrowded institutions to living full and satisfying lives in the community. Despite this progress, however, more work still needs to be done to truly realize the vision of deinstitutionalization. Our panel of experts will talk about the changes they would like to see to help bring this vision to fruition.
