The public health emergency (PHE) ended May 11, 2023. This means changes for people in their benefits, waivers, caregivers, and access to COVID-19 tests, vaccines, and treatment. The Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) will talk about these changes and what they mean for people with disabilities. This event is hosted by the Minnesota Consortium of Citizens with Disabilities (MNCCD), the Metropolitan Center for Independent Living (MCIL), and MDH. ASL interpreting and CART will be provided. Registration is free and open to the public.
