Public Health Disability Information

Posted by Jenna Green on December 20, 2014 at 7:45 PM

Nearly 1 in 5 people - 56.7 million - have a disability in the U.S. (1). Those with disabilities are more likely than those without disabilities to report having poorer overall health, less access to adequate healthcare and more engagement in risky behaviors such as smoking and physical inactivity (2).
