Help with Health Matters
Rimland has joined the one-year HealthMatters, Illinois! initiative, the goal of which is to improve health and health promotion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their caregivers throughout the state of Illinois. HealthMatters, Illinois! is a part of a larger scale-up project led by the HealthMatters Program team at the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Developmental Disabilities and Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, partnering with the Human Development Institute at the University of Illinois and the Illinois Division of Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities to assist provider organizations with promoting healthy lifestyles to people with disabilities. If you would like to learn more about this initiative, please visit http://www.healthmattersprogram.org/Illinois/ Program participants receive resources such as a HealthMatters curriculum, online training sessions, consultations with program staff, and more. Rimland was just accepted into the program in February. We will continue to share progress on the initiative and our participation.
