People with disabilities are more likely to face barriers in health care and wellness settings, which might include medical/dental offices, fitness facilities, recreation facilities, and other community spaces. This can be an overall contributing factor to poor health outcomes. These barriers can involve physical ones (parking, doors, restrooms) and communication (interpreters, complex written materials).
After this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Describe challenges and barriers to health care and wellness from people with disabilities and older adults.
- Understand requirements for facility access and identify priorities to improve physical accessibility.
- Understand how to communicate effectively with people with disabilities and older adults.
This same training workshop will be offered in Evansville, September 20 and Indianapolis, October 18.
There is no cost to attend either workshop, thanks to the support of the Indiana Department of Health.
Registration is required. Limited Spaces!
