WID addresses health care disparities for people with disabilities by working to improve access to quality, culturally competent health care, and services by conducting research, training health care professionals, and improving access to fitness, nutrition, and peer-support activities.
Our initiatives include:
- Nutrition Education, Weight-management, Disability Obesity Options, & Resources (NEW DOOR)
- Disability FEAST Cookbook Plus
- Access to Medical Care DVD Set & Training Curriculum
- Curriculum on Abuse Prevention and Empowerment (CAPE)
- Medical Advocacy Project (MAP) for Health Access
WID’s health and wellness wing is also careful to keep an eye on disability health movements and news outside of the United States. For example, here are three excellent Spanish publications in PDF form about independent living and violence again women with disabilities:
- Vida Independiente: Nuevos Modelos Organizativos (Independent Living: New Organizational Models) (PDF)
- Mujer y Discapacidad (Report on Violence and Disabled Women) (PDF)
- Guia sobre Violencia y Mujer con Discapacidad (Guide on Violence and Disabled Women) (PDF)
