Determinants of Health
People with disabilities face many under-addressed health disparities. Our work focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of health inequities impacting people with disabilities across the following areas:
- Access to Food
Using a disability data justice approach, we are focused on developing, expanding and improving methods to collect disability data. This work is grounded in perspectives of the disability community and prioritizes accessibility and equitable access to this data and information.
STEM Equity and Training
Disabled people are too often excluded from STEM, public health, and healthcare careers, holding back opportunities for advancement across these fields. We are conducting research to understand the barriers and support the development strategies to improve opportunities for career success in these areas.
