Planning to Achieve Health Equity for Delawareans with Disabilities Underway


Planning members at the April 17, 2014 launch of the planning to achieve health equity for Delawareans with disabilities at the Buena Vista Conference Center.

This planning process is a joint endeavor between the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) and the Center for Disabilities Studies at the University of Delaware, with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This effort will harness the collective experience and the earned wisdom of DHSS staff, community partners, and individuals with disabilities and their families. Together this group will create a vision that will ensure that people with disabilities will have access to an active healthy lifestyle, inclusive emergency planning, a system of care that meets all their needs equitably and a plan that will address and eliminate the disparities people with disabilities experience in access, health status and health outcomes.

This planning process will run from April to July of 2014. Work group meeting times and locations will be set by the group members as needed.
