Technology and Disability Highlights - December 2016

Date of Publication: 
2017 January

In December, the Wireless RERC prepared for exciting new beginnings.  We have a new logo, highlighting the broader concept of inclusion, which involves the accessibility of the technologies, but also the benefits that access affords -- social, civic, academic, and economic opportunity. Our center’s newsletters, the Technology and Disability Policy Highlights (TDPH) and Re: Wireless have changed as well. The TDPH will continue to be issued monthly with content curated for a policy, industry, and research audience, while Re: Wireless will be released bimonthly with a focus on Wireless RERC news for consumers. This month, as we re-sort our mailing lists to represent these new focuses, you may receive both newsletters, or you may be receiving the TDPH for the first time. We welcome you as a reader and hope you enjoy the newsletter! Should you wish to unsubscribe from the TDPH, send an email to  If you are not currently a Re: Wireless reader and you would like to receive consumer-focused updates, you can sign-up using the following link: or text WIRELESSRERC to 22828. In 2017, we look forward to providing you wireless resource materials better matched to your interests.
