18 awards were presented to network members and friends at the 2013 AUCD Conference. AUCD is incredibly proud to recognize those who have made exceptional contributions to the lives of people with disabilities and their families.
Located in every U.S. state and territory, AUCD members are all part of universities or medical centers. They serve as a bridge between the university and the community, bringing together the resources of both to achieve meaningful change. The Board of Directors is comprised of members of the AUCD network elected by the membership: six individuals in leadership positions, seven individuals who serve as Chairs or Co-chairs of the Councils of AUCD, one individual representing network trainees and fellows, and four members at large.
