APRIL Project ALIVE: Missouri CIL Trainings
Project ALIVE (Accessible Life-saving Integrated Vaccine Equity) is a short-term focused effort to remove barriers to COVID-19 vaccinations for people with disabilities living in the rural areas of Missouri, Arkansas, and Montana. Rooted in the values of self-determination and self direction, the project does not seek to persuade or convince, but will serve as a resource for those who want the vaccine and those seeking further information in order to make an informed decision.
