This panel will consider the challenges and prospects for the inclusion of people with disabilities in health-related research. We will share findings from two projects: 1) a participatory action research aimed at improving the health and function of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities; and 2) a study that explored the views of people with disabilities about participation in precision medicine research, a newly emerging model for healthcare.
