Report: Disabled Mass. Residents Face Major Health Disparities

Date Posted: Tuesday, April 22, 2014

A new report by UMass Medical School’s Disability, Health and Employment Unit and the Health and Disability Program at the state Department of Public Health, highlights the many ways in which Massachusetts residents with disabilities “fare worse” than those without disabilities when it comes to their own physical and mental health as well as access to quality medical care from doctors sensitive to their needs.  Monika Mitra, PhD, assistant professor of family medicine and community health, is quoted in the story.
