Empowering Seniors with Celiac Disease: Advocacy Strategies and Legal Rights

March 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

We invite you to a comprehensive webinar designed specifically for seniors with celiac disease, caregivers, family members, advocates, and more. This session focuses on empowering attendees with advocacy strategies and highlighting the important legal rights and requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Fair Housing Act (FHA) to ensure effective representation and care in extended care facilities.

This webinar is hosted by Andrew Rozynski and David John Hommel, two attorneys who specialize in disability discrimination and know the ins and outs of the ADA and FHA. They prepared this webinar as an educational platform and a call to action, inspiring attendees to become proactive advocates for seniors with celiac disease. By understanding your legal rights and mastering effective advocacy strategies, you can significantly improve the quality of care and the respect seniors receive in extended care facilities. Join us to be a part of this empowering journey.
