We are excited to announce that Dr. Jill Biden will be speaking on our next call that will take place on Monday, June 27 at 10:30 AM Eastern. We apologize for the early time, but due to the time difference in Greece, this was necessary.

As you have heard, Dr. Biden will be leading a Presidential delegation to the Special Olympics in Athens, Greece.  Dr. Biden will be speaking on the call from Greece.

The call also will feature Lynnae Ruttledge (Commissioner of the Rehabilitation Services Administration) and Sharon Lewis (Commissioner of the Administration on Developmental Disabilities).

I would encourage you to call in about five minutes early due to the large volume of callers.
