Olmstead Advisory Committee
In 2005, California established the Olmstead Advisory Committee to ensure the involvement of people with disabilities and other system stakeholders in making recommendations on actions to improve California's long term care system.
The Olmstead Advisory Committee Members represent consumers, family members, providers and advocates. Members of the committee serve on a volunteer basis without compensation. Brenda Premo, Director of the Center for Disability Issues and the Health Professions at Western University of Health Sciences and a former director of the California Department of Rehabilitation, serves as chair of the committee.
The committee is responsible for providing input to the California Health and Human Services Agency on its efforts to implement the California Olmstead Plan, recommending actions to improve California's long-term care system and creating opportunities to fund expanded or new activities to support individuals with disabilities in their community.
