On March 14th, MERGE founder Lisa Drennan visited CARA Centre
and Institute of Technology Tralee
in Ireland for a chance to meet with administrative members of the Cara Team, as well as faculty & students of the Adaptive Physical Activity Program.
In addition to learning about their organizations, history and mission, she presented on Participation Models for Inclusive Physical Activity and Recreation Programs
