There is a heightened national awareness of the barriers and inequities to health care in the United States. Recent studies indicate that people with disabilities experience both health disparities and specific barriers in access to health care programs and services, including health promotion and prevention.

In this episode of ADA Live!, Michael Richardson, Project Director of the Northwest ADA Center will talk about health care access and the ADA, the role of effective communication in health care decisions, and how health care providers and facilities can be more inclusive of patients with disabilities.
