June 16-17, 2020 at the Chestnut Conferene Centre, Toronto. Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) have a right to healthcare that meets their specific health and developmental needs. As members of the health sector, we are actively exploring the nature and extent of the inequalities often faced by this marginalized group. To bolster these efforts, the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD) Special Interest Research Group and Surrey Place are hosting 20/20 & Beyond, a two-day conference that will raise awareness, increase knowledge and connect policy and practice to improve the health of individuals with IDD.
