One in four people in the U.S. and Indiana have a disability. Given the number of Hoosier with disabilities, and the desire of making health care more accessible, it is important to understand how to best accommodate and effectively communicate with people with disabilities.
This 3-hour workshop will cover the current landscape for disability and health in Indiana; common barriers experienced by people with disabilities in health care or health promotion settings; and disability awareness, sensitivity, and effective communication. By attending this workshop, you will gain new insight and be better prepared to help people with disabilities obtain their optimal health goals.
The Center for Health Equity at Indiana University and the Indiana State Department of Health’s Division of Chronic Disease, Primary Care and Rural Health invite you to attend an Optimal Health for All workshop in Indianapolis, Terre Haute, or Fort Wayne.
