Health Equity: Serving the Whole Person

The pandemic has amplified what we already know: people with disabilities do not have equal access to care across the health continuum. We also know that more than just medical services are needed to enable people with disabilities to lead active, productive lives in their home communities. From housing to meaningful employment, to access to vaccination sites and a safe trip to the grocery store, people with disabilities and their families experience daily disruptions and are often marginalized when it comes to accessing a broad array of needed services. These social determinants of health are critical to individual and community health. The AUCD 2022 Conference takes a deeper dive into Health Equity and the steps needed to ensure that every person is provided the best opportunities possible.
