AUCD and its national network strive to support the critical role that healthcare providers play in serving everyone in the community – including people who have a disability.
Health is for Everyone
Health is for Everyone: Action Team (HEAT): Collaboration of several organizations led by AUCD to include developmental disabilities in medical education at all levels of undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education of physicians. HEAT achieved successful adoption of the American Medical Association (AMA) resolution on including Developmental Disabilities (see pg 40 of 67, or pg 390 paginated, of the AMA HOD Official A-17 Proceedings Report); however, continued momentum is needed to implement specific required competencies for physicians on developmental disabilities.
