Reducing Health Disparities Among VIPs and Other Minority Groups
It is often said that if you want to be healthy, choose your parents wisely. We know that persons with disabilities, or as we prefer, persons who are differently abled, come in all forms and sizes, with many different conditions. We also know that at some point in our lives, we will be differently abled as well. Since we can’t choose our parents, we must rely on the choices that are available to us.
This project is a collaboration between different population groups, between different health care providers, between the medical community and the lay community, between differently abled persons and their caretakers present and future, with whom we choose to engage to make a difference in our health. This project is not about finding a way to navigate through a labyrinth, but a way of joining together several labyrinths and creating a path as a team, to improve the health and well-being of all members of the team.
