The RRTC is celebrating one of our new DEEP members, Ruben Garcia. He will be working with the RRTC for our project Can You Hear Us Now? Engaging Adults with IDD in Health Research.

My name is Ruben Garcia. I am 58 years old. I was born with a disability. My disability is called cerebral palsy. I have been an advocate since I was 11 years old. I have been in the DD system since 1987. I have been a self-advocate in the DD system since 1988. I have been on boards and organizations for people with disabilities over the years. My goal is to make people with disabilities live a better life.
