Individuals living with disability dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid are at higher risk for poor health outcomes when compared to individuals without disability.[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 disability to best meet their care needs.

This event focuses 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, M.P.A., Director, Northwest ADA Center
  • Pam Williamson, B.S., Assistant Project Director, Southeast ADA Center
