Women’s Health and Disability Study

Posted in Disability, Outreach, and Research

Researchers from the University of Michigan are reaching out to women with physical disabilities in our community to learn about their experiences and important topics related to their gynecological and reproductive health.
This study will involve a focus group that will last about 1 1/2 hours. During the focus group participants will share their feedback and experiences about this area of their health.  To be eligible, you must be between 18 and 50 years old and have had a physical disability for more than 6 months.  Participants will receive a $25 gift card.

World AIDS Day

Posted in Advocacy, Disability, and Public Awareness

“On this World AIDS Day we are here to remind you that ‘Everybody Counts’!

Everybody counts if we are to achieve universal health coverage and everybody must count if we are to eliminate AIDS and viral hepatitis as public health threats. Health services should be adapted to reach and meet the needs of those populations most at risk and affected, and this includes implementing a ‘zero tolerance’ policy to stigma and discrimination in all health services, and fully engaging communities as equal and essential partners in the response.”
