The Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation recently published a special issue on vocational rehabilitation of persons from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds. Paul Wehman, from Virginia Commonwealth University, has made the issue open access and would like to see the link to the special issue widely distributed. Having been involved with the RRTC on Evidence-based Practice on VR Service Delivery (RRTC-EBP VR), I have found open access to be a wonderful knowledge mobilization tool to build this bridge between research and service application (research <> praxis).

Thank you everyone for attending this year’s NAMRC Conference! We hope you found the sessions interesting, informative, and engaging!
