Community Health and Disability Inclusion Research and Training Program

Health and community living for people with disabilities.

Community Health and Disability Inclusion projects focus on how environments, policies and the health care system shape health behaviors and outcomes among people with disabilities. We investigate barriers to and successful strategies for improving community participation in health activities and access to health care. We also document the impacts on the health and wellness of people with disabilities. Our goal is to support the development of more healthy and active communities with increased opportunities for social participation and improved access to health care among people with disabilities.
