Wireless RERC project director, Dr. Nathan Moon, attended the RESNA 2018 Conference, which was held in Arlington, VA, on July 12-15, 2018. RESNA, The Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America, is the premier professional membership organization dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of people with disabilities through increasing access to technology solutions.
Nathan participated in the annual Board of Directors meeting, which focused on RESNA's strategic plan for 2019-2023. This marked Nathan's last year as a member of the Board, for which he was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation during the conference. He will remain a co-chair for the RESNA Government Affairs Committee.
The conference included sessions by program officers from the National Institute for Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), including a keynote address by NIDILRR Director Dr. Robert Jaeger. Several Rehabilitation Engineering and Rehabilitation Centers (RERCs) held their State of the Science conferences in conjunction with RESNA, which added to the program's emphasis on cutting edge technology for people with disabilities.
