Integrating disability information into public health education is a fundamental strategy to reducing health disparities experienced by people with disabilities. This panel will present strategies to integrate disability-specific education into public health and health education efforts across audiences and settings. Topics include incorporating disability studies into graduate and undergraduate public health education, delivering disability education to health care providers, and providing inclusive community-based health education efforts for the general public.
