In June, The Arc of Mississippi and Project START co-sponsored the Assistive Technology for Everyone 2023 conference to showcase Mississippi's latest assistive technology. They hosted national speakers to discuss today’s technology tools that assist individuals with disabilities to live independently.
This past spring, the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities announced a request for proposals from CU faculty members for the Technology Translational Research and Development (TTRD) Awards. The TTRD Awards were developed to support the Coleman Institute’s mission to catalyze and integrate advances in technology to promote the quality of life of people with cognitive disabilities and their caregivers.
The Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities is under new leadership. In the fall of 2021, Cathy Bodine, PhD, took the reins of the institute. Dr. Bodine is only the second Executive Director of the prestigious institute.
In the fall of 2021, I was honored to be appointed the new Executive Director for the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities. I believe in the importance of our mission and look forward to leading the Coleman Institute into a new era of technological advances to promote the quality of life of people with cognitive disabilities and their caregivers.
