On Wednesday, November 24, our alternate director Marcela Tenorio, academic at the School of Psychology of the Universidad de los Andes, received the “Commitment UAndes” award granted by this university, after presenting our institute at the conference “From universities to Chile”, which was also attended by the Minister of Social Development, Karla Rubilar, and the Minister of the Environment, Javier Naranjo.
This recognition received by MICARE values our work in care research, from the people and for public policies, under the Millennium Initiative of the ANID Centres and our three host universities: Universidad Andrés Bello, Universidad de los Andes, and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso.
Our spokesperson Ricardo Pizarro also participated in the activity. He shared his experience as a person with intellectual disabilities and the challenges that this group faces in Chile.
