2019 ADARA-AMPHL Conference
June 1-4, 2019
Baltimore, Maryland

Unlike past conferences, this conference will be co-hosted by both ADARA (American Deafness and Rehabilitation Association) and AMPHL (Association of Medical Professionals with Hearing Losses). We are very committed to embrace cross-disciplinary partnership by sharing relevant and important information and resources throughout the conference.

ADARA is an organization that brings professionals together from vocational rehabilitation, behavioral health, education, interpreting, and related fields with the mission of facilitating excellence in human service delivery with individuals who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, late-deafened, and deaf-blind.

AMPHL is an organization that provides information, promotes advocacy and mentorship, and creates a network for individuals with hearing loss interested in or working in health care fields.

Disability Research Consortium (DRC) fellowship programs

The Mathematica Center for Studying Disability Policy (CSDP) provides policymakers and program administrators with the evidence they need to make informed decisions that support effective disability policies and programs. Mathematica offers two DRC fellowship programs to graduate students. There is an open call for dissertation applications which are due for submission by Monday, June 25, 2018.

The summer fellowship program is an opportunity for students in master’s programs or early in doctoral programs (pre-dissertation phase) to spend a summer at Mathematica’s Washington, DC, office to learn more about conducting an independent research project related to disability policy.

The dissertation fellowship program offers financial support to students conducting their doctoral dissertation research on topics consistent with the DRC’s mission. In contrast with the summer fellows program, dissertation fellows remain at their home institution, with financial support provided to continue cutting-edge dissertation research.
