The University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) Center for Human Development will welcome Jeremiah Lwebuga for the Fall 2018 PFP-IDE fellowship.
Located in Anchorage, CHD houses both the federally funded Leadership Education in Neurodevelopment and Related Disabilities (LEND) program and the University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDD). CHD’s leadership in inclusive employment in Alaska includes implementation of a variety of innovative projects including a micro-enterprise loan program, research into customized employment and a research project focused on virtual job coaching. In addition, they can offer Jeremiah the opportunity to connect with the Alaska Training Cooperative, a statewide effort to address workforce needs.
Karen Heath is the Associate Director of UAA’s Center for Human Development and she will be the main point of contact for Jeremiah, the PFP-IDE fellow that is placed at the Alaska UCEDD. She has extensive experience both in being a cultural exchange, as well as hosting other exchanges.
