American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) Webinar: Developing the Road Map to Improve Data on the Health of People with IDD

Event Start Date: January 21, 2020 - 9:00 PM EDT
Event End Date: January 21, 2020 - 10:00 PM EDT


While data on the health of people with disabilities have improved, specific data on people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) is still lacking. Challenges in identifying the population with IDD in national data means that available data does not adequately describe the prevalence and health needs of people with IDD.

In 2002, the Surgeon General’s report called for improved health data for people with IDD. In 2009, the challenge was accepted by agencies of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which aimed to develop a “road map,” a plan for improving national health data.

Hosted by AAIDD’s Research Interest Network, this webinar will provide an update on the status of improved data on health of people with IDD and ask for input on the next road map.
