Today I head back to Chicago as a member of the Steering Committee of the Alliance
for Health which has many implications for people with disabilities and health care reform
in Illinois.

The Arc has been working with Rep Gable, Chairperson of the House Human Services
Committee, to hold a hearing on the implementation of the Integrated Care Program
Phases I & II. We appreciate Rep Gable’s leadership on this issue. The hearing will be
held in Chicago on Sept 17
th, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

I am being honored by UPS for DownS with their Commitment to Excellence Award.
I appreciate their confidence in me and the good work of The Arc. The award will
be presented at their Annual Dinner on October 25th. Thank you UPS for DownS!
