Collaborative on Health Reform and Independent Living

AAHD is excited to be a strategic partner for the Collaborative on Health Reform and Independent Living (CHRIL). The CHRIL is a partnership of four institutions: Washington State University (WSU), Independent Living Research Utilization (ILRU) at TIRR Memorial Hermann, University of Kansas (KU), and George Mason University (GMU). The CHRIL is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and has the stated purpose of “providing disability stakeholders with accurate, current, accessible and actionable information on how recent changes in health policy affect the community living and integration of working-age adults with disabilities.”

Dissemination and Messaging

AAHD is helping with dissemination and messaging of the research being done by the CHRIL. Findings from the CHRIL research are regularly found on our NDNRC project website, some of which are as follows:

In addition, AAHD has presented on CHRIL webinars. Slide decks for these presentations can be found at the links below:
