Health Disparities Among People With Disabilities

Aug 3, 2020

The pandemic has introduced a lot of new challenges for Indiana, but it's also highlighted issues that have long existed. For people with intellectual and physical disabilities, getting in-person care can be crucial, but stay-at-home orders and a shortage of nurses have created huge problems for a lot of disabled Hoosiers. 

Today we talk about health disparities among people with disabilities, and find out what options are available for people facing discrimination.
