FYI from the Institute on Community Integration: May 2024



The Institute's monthly staff newsletter features news of recent activities, accomplishments, and resources. This month's first feature story is about ICI's work on a University of Minnesota team that is testing an artificial intelligence robot to address the shortage of support workers and fight loneliness among older people and those with disabilities. The second story is about the upcoming Reinventing Quality conference; ICI co-presents this event and will ask tough questions about community living and inclusion. The third story is an opinion piece hoping to end subminimum wages for Minnesota workers with disabilities. This month's alum update is about Bruktawit Zewdie (MNLEND 2022-23), who studies how best to use teleoutreach to help families of children with autism.
