DAN, the Diversability Advocacy Network, under the direction of Systems Change Advocate Michael Brady, is back.
The group’s mission is to ensure that citizens have access to quality healthcare, and serves the north Sacramento Valley and mountain communities of the North State.
It endorses a system of long-term services and supports based on principles like dignity, choice, flexibility, quality, legality, cultural competence, accessibility and inclusive independence.
The group meets in the DAC building, 1161 East Avenue, Chico.
DAN partners with the State Council on Developmental Disabilities-North State office, Far Northern, Disability Rights California, the Agency on Aging and DAC.
At its May 18 meeting, the group covered the function, partnership and the importance of the SCAN Foundation as it pertains to DAN.
An update was given on the upcoming DAN Leadership Voices on Healthcare Direction, A Community Symposium which will be held Oct. 12.
DAN’s next meeting is June 15 in the DAC community room in Chico. Call Mr. Brady at 893-8527 for more details.
