Disability Equity Measures: Collecting New Data to Address Disability Disparities in Health Care

2:45 - 3:45 pm - Room 652
Elizabeth Pendo, J.D.

Associate Dean for Academic Affairs & Professor of Law

Saint Louis University School of Law

People with disabilities face multiple barriers to health care, and report poorer health status than people without disabilities.  Although these barriers and inequities bear the hallmarks of health disparities, people with disabilities have not been included in prior federal initiatives to reduce health disparities.   The Affordable Care Act remedies that exclusion.  Its provisions on the collection, analysis, and dissemination of disparities data include – for the first time -- disability status.   The ACA’s ground-breaking inclusion of disability status provides an opportunity to address gaps in the existing literature, and to generate comprehensive demographic and experiential data informed by an accurate conception and experience of disability.  If developed correctly, the data could be used to guide the design of programs, services and structural reforms to reduce disability-based disparities and increase the health and health care of people with disabilities. 

This event will be held at Georgia State University College of Law, 140 Decatur Street, Atlanta, Georgia 30303

For information on directions and parking, visit http://law.gsu.edu/about/directions.html.

This event is free of charge and open to the public.
