Support for Establishment of the Center for the Study and Advancement of Disability Policy
The NLM Family Foundation provided seed money to support the establishment of the Center for the Study and Advancement of Disability Policy at George Washington University. With Professor Robert Silverstein serving as Director, the Center for the Study and Advancement of Disability Policy conducts research and analysis of public policy issues which directly affect individuals with various disabilities and their families. It is hoped that through their research and analysis, the Center might develop solutions to adequately meet the needs of individuals with disabilities and their families and the concerns of public and private entities. Additionally, the Center provides public education, leadership development and training, technical assistance and information dissemination to disability groups, international, national, state, local, and private sector leaders and others interested in learning about the laws and programs which affect individuals with disabilities and their families.
