Why it’s needed

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in four Americans has a disability. And people with disabilities have significantly less access to adequate health care and wellness resources. Because of this lack of access – to routine tests, equipment, facilities, transportation and even empathy – people with disabilities are also much more likely to develop secondary conditions, like pain, fatigue, obesity or depression. Adults with disabilities are even three times as likely to have heart disease, stroke, diabetes or cancer.
