Panel discussion: "Realizing the Vision of Deinstitutionalization: What Needs to be Done"

Despite this progress, however, more work still needs to be done to truly realize the vision of deinstitutionalization. Our panel of experts will talk about the changes they would like to see to help bring this vision to fruition.
