According to the US General Accountability Office, adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) continue to experience unnecessary deaths due to poor healthcare.

AADMD wants to change this.

AADMD is a non-profit organization of interdisciplinary medical professionals committed to improving the quality of healthcare for people with IDD.

AADMD is teaming up with the Golisano Foundation in Rochester, NY for this cause. The 3-day conference (plus the One Voice for Oral Health Pre-Conference on May 9th) will bring industry leaders and IDD professionals together in One Voice for Inclusive Health.

Last year, AADMD welcomed the US Surgeon General Jerome Adams, Chairman of the Board for Special Olympics International Tim Shriver, CEO of Special Olympics Mary Davis, Maristela Monteiro of the Pan-American Health Organization/ World Health
