SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background: The PCPID members participated in a face-to-face meeting on February 19-20, 2015 and streamlined the process of preparing the 2015 RTP. As the Phase I of the process, they decided to research four focus areas through the lens of technology. These focus areas included:

1. Education;

2. Community Living;

3. Health and Wellness;

4. Economic Well-Being.

The members also agreed to reconvene in April, through a webinar/conference call, to report their findings to the full Committee and discuss the development of potential recommendations for inclusion to the PCPID 2015 RTP.

The general purpose of the PCPID webinar/conference call is, thus, to present a forum for the members to complete Phase I and discuss the next phase of preparing the PCPID 2015 RTP.

Webinar and Registration: The webinar is scheduled for April 7, 2015, 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (EST) and may end early if discussions are finished. Registration for the webinar is required and is open from March 16, 2015 to April 3, 2015.
