Happy New Year! All the best from the Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities (MCDD) to all our readers.
This issue of the newsletter is absolutely loaded with the latest news from the MCDD, Kennedy Krieger Institute and the community. Please be sure to read about the upcoming Maryland General Assembly and gubernatorial race, plus everything you need to know about the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC) at Kennedy Krieger Institute and The Johns Hopkins University.
Last October, the MCDD conducted a community needs assessment, in preparation for submission of its five-year plan to the Administration for Community Living. We were quite pleased to receive more than 200 responses. Be sure to see the article in MCDD News for details of the data.
Once again, we have added resources regarding COVID-19. I hope the resources are helpful and that you enjoy this issue of the newsletter.
Please stay safe.
