Our guest will have a hectic schedule: to participate in the creation of the Community Health Clinic based on Lviv Polytechnic; to share the experience of the Accessibility Service at Manitoba University (Canada); to discuss with the employees of the «Integration» Center and the lecturers of the Department of Sociology and Social Work the mechanisms of functioning of the «No Limits» Accessibility Services.
