New Report: Disability and Chronic Disease in MT

NEW Montana Disability and Health Program report examines disability and chronic disease in Montana.

Having a disability does not mean an individual is not healthy or cannot be healthy. However, people with disabilities experience higher rates of chronic disease and other health disparities compared to those without disabilities. By identifying these disparities, health care programs can be tailored to inform healthy choices and prevent illness among this population.
