Description: 

Individuals living with disabilities dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid are at higher risk for poor health outcomes when compared to individuals without disabilities.[1] This event, in collaboration with the Americans with Disabilities Act National Network (ADANN), provided a platform for questions to be answered on how healthcare organizations and facilities can best improve accessibility for participants living with disabilities to best meet their care needs.

This event focused on healthcare facility accessibility, including physical and communication barriers that may impede participants living with disabilities from receiving care. Representatives from ADANN answered your ADA and other accessibility questions.

Featured Speakers:

  • Michael Richardson, Director, Pacific Northwest ADA Center
  • Pam Williamson, Assistant Project Director, Southeast ADA Center
