Partnering with ALS in the project will be Virtual Ability, Inc. (VAI). VAI presence in Second Life has included their ongoing work as The Heron Sanctuary, which provides a community of support for people with disabilities.
The grant, called Share the Health: Training People with Disabilities and Chronic Medical Conditions on how to Locate Quality Health Information, will fund a new island with an orientation and training center for people with disabilities and chronic illness. It is the third grant awarded to ALS for the provision of consumer health information in Second Life, and will also fund a continuation of current efforts.
