Join us to learn about two community-based programs that support the health, quality of life, and participation of people living with disabilities in Montana.
Access to healthcare is both a common rural healthcare problem and a specific problem for people with disabilities. When these two challenges are combined, the individual with a disability who lives in a rural area confronts additional barriers to receiving the quality of care that support health, quality of life, and participation in rural communities.
These two evidence-based programs provide alternative models for delivering health promotion services to people with disabilities in rural areas by using existing resources, building community capacity, and encouraging full use of local services to ensure people with disabilities have opportunity to healthy living in Montana.
Topics will include: the behavioral risks and health status of people with disabilities, secondary conditions, health promotion for people with disabilities, community partnerships, capacity building.
