This poster session examines the intersectionality of disability, race and rurality in a public health setting. American Indians with disability often reside in rural, isolated settings and experience worse health outcomes compared to American Indians without disability and their Caucasian counterparts with disability. Presenters will share their course development project addressing the unique issues surrounding this population. This course development initiative is funded by the AUCD Diversity Fellowship Project.
