We are working to improve the health of Ohioans with disabilities: Ohio Disability and Health Program

We are training future health care providers to provide better care to patients with disabilities. This video was developed for medical students to challenge inaccurate and damaging assumptions about people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

In our RRTC research, we collaborate with adults with intellectual disability to promote the inclusion of people with intellectual disability in health research. The video below features members of our disability panel.
