LIFE, a center for independent living.
As Covid cases are on the rise, the Idaho Independent Living Conference is now offered both in person and virtually.
The conference will be September 17 – 18th at the Holiday Inn & Suites in Idaho Falls. Holiday Inn is setting a nightly rate of only $99 per night, a considerable discount! Book sooner rather than later.
The conference is for anyone with a significant disability. Anyone who knows someone with a significant disability. Anyone who supports someone with a significant disability. Anyone who cares about someone with a significant disability. And anyone who wants to promote the independence of someone with a significant disability. Register at IDLife.org.
The General Track will be all about getting back to our IL roots. What are the fundamental things we can do to be more independent, get the rights we have been denied and advocate for those that may need support?
The Advanced Track will be concurrent to the General Track and have special advanced training on financial issues when living with a disability, tracking outcomes on populations with disabilities, interviewing and more.
The Keynote Speaker will be Steven Jacobo, US Paralympian. Steven brings a great story of independence sure to inspire you. He is the father of two amazing little boys. The Nevada resident had an unfortunate snowboarding accident that left him with an incomplete spinal cord injury at the T9-10 level. After spending a month at Renown Medical Center, Steven was transferred to Ranchos Los Amigos in Downey, CA. Since his injury, Steven has focussed on therapy and lifting weights. He has worked to become a member of the USA Para-Bobsleigh team and after reaching one podium in World Cup season, is now ranked 10th in the world.
