Pathways RTC Launches New Website

Our new website's "responsive" layout makes content readable at any screen size, from smartphone or tablet to large desktop monitor. Additionally, visitors can now stream previous webinar recordings directly – rather than downloading media files. An improved publications search interface will help visitors more easily find research that is relevant to them. Focal Point articles from the newest issues are available right on our website as text without having to download a PDF. Other new accessibility features make our content more readily available to readers of all abilities.
