At H-CARDD we aim to improve the health and health care of people with developmental disabilities. We do this by sharing our research findings about the health and health care of adults with developmental disabilities and by creating tools and resources that improve health care. Here are a few suggestions about how you can help too! It's only if we all work together that we can make change happen.

Talk about health
"Preventive care is one of the most important health care interventions for people with developmental disabilities", says doctor Bill Sullivan. Talking about health and mental health and the importance of health care for people with developmental disabilities can help improve preventive health care.
If you would like to give a talk about health and health care to people with developmental disabilities, at your agency or organization, or to medical students, we are able to assist and provide helpful resources and information. Contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
