The Tennessee Disability MegaConference is an annual two-day event that brings a wealth of resources for Tennesseans with disabilities together under one roof. Sessions are held throughout the two days and are designed to inform and inspire not only people with disabilities, but also their families and professionals. This year, tracks were developed that focused on specific topics. Each track crossed 5 themes: Personal stories of success; Resources for success; Successful advocacy strategies; Assistive technology to promote success; and Navigating systems for success.
